MEPIS Birthday Surprise: SimplyMEPIS 8.5 alpha Release

November 21 was the seventh anniversary of MEPIS Linux, so it seems fitting that Warren Woodford has uploaded SimplyMEPIS 8.4.80, the alpha release of MEPIS 8.5. More here

Warren Woodford explained the rationale behind the 8.5 release: “MEPIS is based on Debian Stable source which is extremely reliable and well supported by the Debian community. Debian makes a stable release approximately every two years, but MEPIS users are always anxious for the latest software. So when we deem it safe to do so, we cautiously update application software using newer sources. In this way, we keep the release relevant and interesting for a longer time.”
