Weekly Status Report: 2020-02-16

Hello all!

The news of the week is definitely our release of Adélie Linux 1.0-RC1. It doesn’t stop there, though. We’ve made a lot of exciting progress since then.


The DiskMan component has been written, and with it, the majority of the Qt 5-based partitioning user interface.

Calvin Buckley has rewritten the Horizon CLI tools to use Boost::program_options instead of clipp.


The majority of our project servers have been upgraded to RC1 and easy-kernel 5.4.


A. Wilcox (awilfox@) has integrated graphical fixes to Firefox while updating it for the latest security patches. This should resolve most rendering issues on big-endian systems. They also enabled IPv6 support in the default Chrony configuration.

Kiyoshi Aman (aerdan@) overhauled Perl packages and updated MATE to its latest version.

Hello all!

In addition to our usual work on Horizon, this week also saw developments with our Web site.


Wi-Fi network association using the Horizon Wizard UI is under heavy development and it is likely to land very soon.

Package choices are now possible in the Custom installation. You can choose to from each category whether to install all packages, individual packages, or no packages. This is similar to other operating system installers.

Web Site

A new design and layout for our Web site is in development. The site is based on the flexible Bulma CSS template. We are hoping to release this new site design in time for the Adélie Linux 1.0 release.
