Solus 2.0 introduces the Sol package manager

Solus 1.2

Solus OS will come to its version Solution 2.0, that brings some interesting news. After a long wait, Josh Strobl from Solus Project has given signs of life and has announced some news that will be integrated in this new version that will come to us from the famous distro. One of the most relevant changes is the new package manager that Solus 2.0 will incorporate, it is Sol, which will replace the old eopkg package manager.

The development team led by Ikey Doherty has worked hard for this new version of the operating system that promises great advances. The intention of the developers is for Sol to replace eopkg and improve its features. The implementation has been done using the C programming language and promises to take advantage of the features of modern CPUs, as well as provide a much lighter disk profile. Welcome improvements ...

As Doherty has said, they have not stopped improving Solus OS, and are laying the foundations of Solus 2.0, while users can now enjoy the Solus 1.2 version. Don't worry about compatibility, Sol will be compatible with eopkg, but you will notice the speed and other improvements that will be quite evident. The experience that the project is gaining over the months has been able to allow Solus to become more and more mature and to avoid making beginner mistakes or taking better paths for the future of the project.

Also, if you already liked the budgie desktop environment, now the developers promise to rewrite it in C completely to gain performance against the Vala language used today. Additionally, applet contributors will also see performance and behavior improvements with fewer bugs without breaking their code. While all this is happening, the team is working towards the closest Solus 1.2.1 version, which should appear in mid-July for all the users who love Solus so much.
