We are happy to announce the first preview of GoboLinux 016, the distro's first 64-bit release since its creation back in 2002. Some of the highlights include:
We have worked hard to ensure it runs smoothly on a variety of machines, but given the
architecture switch it is possible that we forgot something. We will collect reports from
you for a few weeks before rolling a new snapshot of what'll soon become 016 final.
Here's the Torrent link. We hope you enjoy it!

Ten years of commits, from CVS, to Subversion, and now to Git: we're happy to announce github.com/gobolinux.
The entire history of commits has been preserved. We tried our best to convert tags, but due to inconsistencies in the format of the tags/ repository over time (perhaps due to CVS→Subversion conversions), not all were saved. Still, most recent releases for Scripts and Compile are properly tagged, though.
There is still work to do: the scripts themselves still need to be converted to point to the new infrastructure. The GitHub repositories will be also cloned at the gobolinux.org infrastructure as a backup, but primary development should happen there. Yes, that means pull requests are welcome!

We are pleased to announce the release of GoboLinux 015 beta3. We have had several updates on this snapshot that include changes to the desktop environment: for the first time, we're shipping the ISO with Enlightenment as a default desktop.
We have also completed the transition from /System/Links to /System/Index.
This snapshot also introduces a number of new packages that should enrich the desktop experience. We have fixed all issues that have been reported since beta2 and worked hard to make this release as polished and close to final as possible.
The ISO can be downloaded here:
Please test it and give us your feedback. You can always reach us on the mailing lists or at the #gobolinux channel on irc.freenode.net!
