GoboLinux.org in Turkish!The language bar at the top of the page continues to grow: GoboLinux.org is now available in eleven languages. Turkish is the latest language to join the list, thanks to the efforts of Fatih Altınok.
We are very happy to introduce GoboLinux 014.01, the new release of GoboLinux, the Linux distribution with an alternative file system structure. This release is our first "point release", providing a stability update for our latest major release, GoboLinux 014, which was released three months ago.
Read the detailed release notes for more information and the full list of packages, including a list of which packages have changed from 014 to 014.01.
Once again, thanks to everybody who contributed with feedback, bug reports, bug fixes, recipes, translations...
