Dear all,

You better believe it, the day you all have been waiting for has finally arrived. The Lunar team proudly announce the final release of Lunar Linux 1.7.0 codename ‘Sinus Successus’.

Like the phoenix rising from the ashes Lunar Linux is back with a vengeance; a lot of overhauling have been done all over the core tools, packages, installer and the ISO-builder. Even though our journey to reach this milestone have been a long one we hope that the changes and quality improvements we’ve made was worth the wait. So what are you waiting for? Go grab a copy of Lunar Linux while it is hot!

- The Lunar team

  • Grub2 or lilo, pick your poison
  • Improved installer
  • Now with initrd support
  • A bunch of updated modules!

    This is great!

    1. Is possible to install Gnome 2 in new Lunar?
    2. If 1 is possible, where is Nautilus 2.32.* in repo?

  4. Steven Vanden Branden says:

    Nice to see the port to systemd and a more recent kernel!

    i would like to bring up an idea about git support.

    maybe it would be possible to add something like GITSOURCE so that lunar can make the same project but from a git source instead of the stable version?

    is this idea worthwile?

    it would be the first distro able to build from git?

    maybe better to ask on the mailing list?

    but great job!

    Hmm: Out with sysvinit (gasp!) in with systemd (wth?!)
    But : Now with initrd support

    How!? Lunar on systemd or on sysv? And before Lunar work without initamfs?

    • Ratler says:

      Lunar use systemd. Depending on your configuration any linux distro can run without a initrd (initramfs). We just didn’t provide an out-of-the-box solution for people that required an initrd, but we do now.
