Released the new version of Elive 3.0.4, a Debian-based distro


A new version of Elive has been released Linux, which is an unknown Linux distribution based on Debian. Elive is characterized by providing an intuitive experience in a completely system, ready for daily use.

The Elive desktop environment is a highly customized version of Enlightenment It offers a light and beautiful experience that works great even on older computers and uses Debian as the foundation to provide a perfectly stable and powerful system.

It can be run directly in live mode without the need to install your own guided persistence feature.

Even if the user wants to install the distribution on their computer, Elive has a very friendly installer that includes many features to facilitate the process.

Elive is a mix between an easy-to-use system for inexperienced users and includes incredibly useful tools for the advanced. This hybrid comes in the form of a clean and beautiful desktop, yet powerful to get any task done.

An of the features that make Elive a Linux distribution to take into account, is that this still has support for 32-bit processors (x86) with which Elive is still one of the few Linux distributions currently with support for this.

So Ubuntu users who have decided to migrate to other 32-bit compatible systems can give Elive a try.


What's new in Elive 3.0.4?

The new version of Elive 3.0.4 has few relevant changes since it is merely a package update version.

Well, after 5 months since the previous version (Elive 3.0.3) was released, the image of this version is no longer viable for users, since after installing they will have to download a large number of update packages.

Of the changes that highlights are the improvements to the system audio, as it was improved by adding support for pulseaudio in Elive's internal mixing tool, in case the user installs it alone.

As well the tool that suggests a monthly donation to the project was disabled.

    I've always loved Enlightenment, but the project is super stagnant.
