Bodhi Pre-Release Lets Folks Try Moksha

bodhiJeff Hoogland today announced the pre-release of upcoming Bodhi Linux 3.1.0 with new E17 fork Moksha. Hoogland released the "pre-release" so users might try his new desktop fork and report their thoughts in comments. Bodhi 3.1.0 is scheduled for release on August 24 with 3.2.0 projected for February 2016.

Bodhi 3.1.0 was announced today (well, yesterday now) for early testers. This is the first release to feature the newly forked Enlightenment DR17 Moksha desktop 0.1.0. The download is slow and the image boots slow, but the desktop is fast. Right now, the desktop is very plain with no application or task bars. The menu appears with a left-click. The desktop starts with the Midori browser open to some helpful links. It ships with the default and a dark theme currently, but more may be added later.

The underpinnings of this release includes Linux 3.16.0, X.Org X Server 1.15.1, GCC 4.8.4, and Moksha 0.1.0. Some of the software include PCManFM, ePad, Ephoto, Midori, and some system tools. Bodhi is shipped with little software by design so users can customize Bodhi as they desire.

Look for the 3.1.0 August 24, 2015.
