Uri Herrera releases the new Nitrux 1.3.1. Linux Distro with the latest Plasma desktop, new Calamere installer, bug fixes, hardware support
Uri Herrera yesterday announced the release of Nitrux 1.3.1, the first point release to the Nitrux 1.3 series of this lovely Linux distro based on the latest KDE technologies and Ubuntu. The new Nitrux 1.3.1 comes with several software updates, bug fixes, performance improvements, and new hardware support.
Nitrux is an unique Linux distro not just because of its lovely Plasma desktop but also for using a portable universal application format, AppImage, in addition to a package manager like APT and DPKG. Nitrux 1.3.1 now includes the recently released KDE Plasma 5.19.4 desktop environment, along with the KDE Applications 20.04.03 and KDE Frameworks 5.72.0 open-source software suites.
On the base, Nitrux 1,3.1 now runs on Linux Kernel 5.6.0-1020 which fixes many bugs and security issues. The developer for some reason did not use Linux Kernel 5.7 and decided to stick with the latest 5.6 iteration of the Linux Kernel.
As said above, Nitrux 1.3.1 now runs an updated KDE Plasma desktop to version 5.19.4, KDE Framework to version 5.72.0, and KDE Applications to version 20.04.03. It also has updated the GTK theme to match it with the Plasma color scheme. Furthermore, Nitrux 1.3.1 now has an updated Luv icon theme, including the Wallpapers.
Nitrux 1.3.1 has also a new updated Calamares installer with a refreshing UI and QML port module, Calamares-QML. The new version has fixed issues with environmental variables while changing application styles.
You can download the Nitrux 1.3.1 Linux distro ISO image from here. The new ISO now uses the LZ4 lossless data compression algorithm to give faster installation time.
