Makulu is Moving

As of 28 September 2016 MakuluLinux will be using Sourceforge to host the main website. This will allow us to cut costs of hosting since the project is not receiving sufficient funds to keep the current host, Sourceforge offers all the existing features that the current website offers, Altho not quite as pretty, but very professional none the less. There will be no downtime, it is a simple redirect switch that will happen instantly.

The new site can already be viewed at this link : https://sourceforge.net/projects/makulu/  and the makululinux.com domain will be redirected on the 28th.

Makulu LinDoz 12 Development News

Makulu LinDoz 12 Development build Beta 1.22 Has just been released to Testers. This is one of the final Builds as we get ready for the First Public Development Build Release.

Changes : 

  • Implemented permanent MakuluLinux Repository with multiple mirrors all around the world for maximum speed during updates.
  • Expanded the ISO collection to 4, Each architecture now has a “Slim” and a “Full” build and come in both 32bit and 64bit.
  • The Slim build remains almost bare-bone, but it does contain a Text editor, Calculator, Web browser and Wine pre installed.
  • The Full build has a Text editor, Calculator, Web browser, Media player, Audio player, Office suite, Email Client, Wine, PDF viewer, Screen-shot tool, Drawing software, Steam, Chat messenger and a few small games. I have tried to not over bloat it, yet make it usable out of the box for the average user.
  • Fixed Mount issues.
  • Fixed packages that caused a crash on boot-up.
  • Added a pop up on installer and a pop up after first boot.
  • Some changes to the splash screen, it now sports a black background blending with the environment.
  • Fixed language issues.
  • Cleanup of the Menu, ( fixed missing icons, putting icons into correct categories etc etc ).
  • Polishing all round the distro.

 

We are very very close to releasing now, Its a matter of Days now till we make an Announcement…
