Foresight Linux Newsletter – Issue 02 2012

Editor’s Note

Need to start thanking all users for the kind words for previous newsletter and all good feedback for wiki page.
Users are asking what kind of environment we are using in Foresight, We are still using GNOME 2, openbox and xfce.

We will add some focus on games for upcoming weeks in this wiki and in gameway repo. We’ll keep gameway page updated for newly added games.

Thanks to masashi, we managed to get in Lxde into Foresight. Needed a reminder about getting it in to Foresight.

And thank you all that are following us on Google+. We currently have 192 followers, more than we hoped for in this stage.

Development

Soon python 2.7 will be available in Foresight Linux.

Lxde has been added into Foresight Linux. That page will be updated soon with more information and how the groups are setup, so you can easily skip applications you don’t want to have installed.

We are working to get some new iso for you to download for gnome, xfce and lxde. But they are not done yet.

We are currently testing Xfce 4.10pre1, hopefully it’s stable enough to get into Foresight. Final release of 4.10 comes April 28th, 2012.
