Interview feature with GoboLinux developerPacktpub.com is featuring an article with our very own Lucas Villa Real in a pretty nice interview about the past, present and future of GoboLinux. Check it out! Thanks to Mayank Sharma for the coverage.
GoboLinux.org in Swedish!First it was "ã", then "ß", then "я", then "ő", then "è", then "ñ"... and now "å"! GoboLinux.org continues to stress the Unicode capabilities of your browser by integrating one more language to the website. :) We're happy to announce gobolinux.org in Swedish! Many thanks to Jonas Karlsson for his hard work translating the site. Or as the Swedish chef would have said: "Bork, bork bork!"
GoboLinux 014 development snapshots
For the process of stabilizing the GoboLinux 014 ISO and get it ready for release, we are now starting a series of development snapshots. The idea is to make it easier for people to see where we're at now, and to make it easier for people willing to help in testing out the release to "jump in" and get it to a state real close to where the live development is.
The latest snapshot is always available at the downloads page.
All feedback is greatly welcome. Please give it a spin and report any problems in the bug tracker.
Scripts 2.7.0, Compile 1.9.0, ChrootCompile 1.0.3New versions of the GoboLinux tools were announced, featuring a number of bugfixes. The new version of Scripts also includes reworked signing/verification functionallity and Scripts+Compile now has real support for GConf schemes, which is required for Gnome, and desktop files database, for better file type association and to update e.g. XFCE menu directly when installing/removing applications.
Have a look at the mailing list announcement for installation instructions and the full change log.
New online recipe viewerThe GoboLinux website now has a new online search tool for recipes: recipes.gobolinux.org, which you can also access from the "chef hat" icon on this page. It has many nice features such as search by descriptions, crosslinked dependencies and the ability to view files from recipes. Many thanks to mpb, who is the developer and maintainer.

The wallpaper for the LiveCD desktop has endured many releases and served very well through all these years giving that extra spice of quirkyness to this already unconventional distro, but as all things come to an end, it is time to retire it. What will take the place of the mysterious penguin feet? It's up to you to come up with. Yes, it's a wallpaper contest -- send in your proposals to gobo AT gobolinux.org and we'll post them online. Submission is open for two weeks (until May 19th).
