Foresight Linux 2.5.0 ALPHA 2 GNOME Edition Release Notes
It is with great pleasure that I announce the release of Foresight 2.5.0 ALPHA 2 GNOME Edition!
Once again, this alpha release is from our QA branch, and is intended mostly toÂ receive feedback on brand new installs from end-users, specially in relation to the overall behavior of X.org on first boot!
