Bodhi Linux 7.0 Beta Ready for Testing

May 23, 2023

The latest iteration of the Bohdi Linux distribution is now available for those who want to experience what's in store and for testing purposes.

Bodhi Linux has been around for some time now, and the latest release promises new versions of software, better hardware support, heightened security, improved performance, and much more to entice new users and please those who've been on board.

Front and center of the new version is Moksha 0.4.0-8 desktop, which includes a number of improvements, including completely refactored modules, a new keybindings viewer, better window snapping, Do Not Disturb feature for menu items, an Internal Notification API which was backported from e25, and much more. As well, there are new themes for both Plymouth and the Greeter application.

For the base, you'll find Ubuntu 22.04.2 LTS, a choice of three different kernels (Standard 5.15.0-71-generic, HWE 5.19.0-41, and 6.2.6), EFL 1.26.99-2, the mozillateam PPA, kelebek333's PPA nvidia-legacy PPA, and Ubuntu Backports is enabled.

A lot of work has also gone into improving and fixing the many modules included with Bodhi Linux and there've been plenty of software updates, including Chromium (non-snap version) 113.0.5672.63, Terminology 1.13.1-3, the Web Browser Manager (which allows you to select any number of browsers to install), and Thunar 4.16.
