    56== What's New in 3.6r0? ==
    67Parsix GNU/Linux 3.6 (code name `Vinnie`) is a brand new release that brings tons of updated packages, faster live boot and quality new features. This version has been synchronized with Debian testing repositories as of July 1, 2010 and brings lot of updated packages compared to Parsix 3.5 aka Frankie. Now we have a snapshot of Debian Multimedia repository called Wonderland. Vinnie ISO images will not fit on CD and a DVD is required to burn them. These images are compiled using SquashFS 4.0 with LZMA compression. Our updated Linux 2.6.32.20 kernel with improved configuration is patched using !TuxOnIce 3.1.1.1 suspension/hibernation and Kon Kolivas's BFS patches. This version also ships our new experimental USB installer that enables users to run Parsix from USB keys and pen drives. Parsix Vinnie has a brand new light look and feel. Parsix 3.6 default features: !NetworkManager 0.8.1 as default networking stack, GRUB 2 boot loader and ext4 file system, brand new update-manager package, and X.Org 7.5. Highlights: GNOME 2.30.2, X.Org 7.5, GRUB 2, GNU Iceweasel 3.5.11, GParted 0.6.2, Empathy 2.30.1.1, !OpenOffice.org 3.2.1, Compiz-Fusion 0.8.4 and, !VirtualBox-OSE 3.2.6.
