     4== Welcome to Parsix GNU/Linux 7.5-TEST-1 Release Notes ==
     5Parsix GNU/Linux is a live and installation DVD based on Debian. Our goal is to provide a ready to use and easy to install desktop and laptop optimized operating system based on Debian's testing branch and the latest stable release of GNOME desktop environment. Users can easily install extra software packages from Parsix APT repositories. Our annual release cycle consists of two major and four minor versions. We have our own software repositories and build servers to build and provide all the necessary updates and missing features in Debian stable branch.

     7== What's New in 7.5? ==
     8Parsix GNU/Linux 7.5 (code name `Rinaldo`) brings the latest stable GNOME desktop environment, a new kernel built using our modernized kernel build system, updated installer, a new version of systemd and an upgraded X.Org Server. This version has been synchronized with Debian Wheezy repositories as of February 20, 2015. Thanks to the upgraded X.Org server, there is a noticable desktop performance improvement. Parsix Rinaldo ships with GNOME 3.14 and !LibreOffice productivity suit by default. Highlights: GNOME Shell 3.14.3, X.Org 1.16.4, GRUB 2, GNU Iceweasel (Firefox) 35.0.1, GParted 0.12.1, Empathy 3.12.7, !LibreOffice 3.5.4, !VirtualBox 4.3.18 and a kernel based on Linux 3.14.32 with !TuxOnIce 3.3, BFS and other extra patches. Live DVD has been compressed using SquashFS and XZ.
