budgie-remix 16.10 released


16-10

I’m very pleased to announce the release of budgie-remix based on the solid 16.10 Ubuntu foundations.

For the uninitiated, budgie-remix utilises the wonderful budgie-desktop graphical interface from the Solus team.

This is our first release following the standard Ubuntu release cycle – alphas, betas, release candidates.  Certainly eventful with this release we are very proud with the results.

The level of interest has been spectacular – a growing number of contributors, offers of help – so much so we just could not incorporate everything!

With a dynamic team and community developers & testers we are certain we have a good future ahead of us.  Roll on 17.04.

Just a few thanks – there too many people to individually thank – but you know who you are – so three cheers to you.

  • Our Debian reviewers – Adam Borowski & Gianfranco Costamagna
  • Our Ubuntu reviewers – Jeremy Bicha & Daniel Holbach
  • Ikey Doherty
  • Rob Peters and all the budgie-remix bug-busters – massive thanks for your detailed testing effort.
  • Ossian Mapes – we will definitely be looking to showcase your budgie-remix lightdm webkit2 greeter in the future!
  • The budgie-remix team Udara, Niyas, Joshua, Hexcube, Nikola,  Mikl
  • Our financial supporters
  • Our exponentially growing community who have embraced us on all social media – twitter, reddit, G+, Facebook
