    77== What's New in 3.7r0-TEST-2? ==
    8 This is the second official testing release of Parsix GNU/Linux 3.7 series and is being released after several months of testing and development. Parsix GNU/Linux 3.7 (code name `Raul`) release brings tons of updated packages, faster live boot and quality new features. This version has been synchronized with Debian testing repositories as of Feb 7, 2010 and brings lot of updated packages compared to Parsix 3.6 aka Vinnie. Parsix DVD images are compiled using SquashFS 4.0 with LZMA compression. Our brand new Linux 2.6.37.6 based kernel with improved configuration is patched using !TuxOnIce 3.2 suspension/hibernation, Kon Kolivas's BFS and extra hardware support patches. For the first time we are including certain drivers from kernel's staging tree including the new experimental nouveau graphics diver for nVidia chips. Updated installer provides even simpler interface and enables installing Parsix on existing software RAID partitions. Some changes have been made to the defaul applications stack: Parsix is now being shipped with XBMC media center, Adidemux video editor, Remmina replaces Tsclient and Exile is no longer shipped with the ISOs. Parsix Raul has a brand new light and fast look and feel. Parsix 3.7 default features: !NetworkManager 0.8.1 as default networking stack, GRUB 2 boot loader and ext4 file system, and X.Org 7.5. Highlights: GNOME 2.32.1, X.Org 7.5, GRUB 2, GNU Iceweasel 4.0.1, GParted 0.8.1, Empathy 2.30.3, !OpenOffice.org 3.2.1, Compiz-Fusion 0.8.4 and, !VirtualBox-OSE 4.0.4. Please note that Raul is also covered by security updates.
