AROS : Icaros Desktop 2.1 now available
Posted by paolone on 2016/3/14 3:19:48 (1631 reads)

The latest version of AROS distribution Icaros Desktop has been released. V2.1 consolidates the 2.0.x codebase with many bugfixes and additions, above all a new version of OWB supporting HTML5 videos (YouTube.com and others). This release also includes handlers for NTFS-3G and exFAT partitions, and can now access (in read-only mode) your Google Drive account, simplifying its configuration with a dedicated Prefs tool (coded in LUA by Icaros team).

As always, a huge thanks for the new release.


P.S. I'm currently getting a blank page for icarosdesktop.org but loading up fine from vmwaros.blogspot.co.uk.

 Re: Icaros Desktop 2.1 now available
Looks good! I've enjoyed Icaros so much in VirtualBox that I'm beginning to want a dedicated Icaros-system. With the improvements to OWB and other enhancements, it's becoming a truly "useful" OS.

One thing I wish they'd change is the default theme. I know it can be changed easily, and some of the provided themes look great, but first impressions are important. It's simply too "busy", both the wallpaper and window borders. They don't have to go totally minimalist like Win 10, but IMO it should be toned down slightly to make it look more professional.
