Going from Alpha to Beta, it's time for SimplyMepis.
Now, it's announced:
Beta1 includes many package updates. For example, Warren Woodford, founder of MEPIS, says “Thanks to the hard work of Jonathan Riddell and the Kubuntu team, the latest Ubuntu Dapper updates to KDE and Cups greatly improve print support. Yea team!”
Beta1 provides a 18.104.22.168 kernel based on Ubuntu kernel version 2.6.15-21.32. MEPIS kernels are source-identical with Ubuntu kernels but the configurations are tweaked to accommodate MEPIS specific requirements.
