I am pleased to announce the release of SbK Xfce-Compiz 20.0.3.
This is a very pretty desktop IMHO.
This release has:
- Compiz 9 with the rotating cube for virtual desktops, faded windows in the background, wobbly windows, and other effects.
- The 5.4.43 LTS kernel.
- A dock with transparent background and intelligent auto hide.
- A new GTK and matching Kvantum theme (KvSpinDarkMauve).
- A new icon theme Mint-X-Mauve and matching dark theme with lighter controls.
- 13 new backgrounds in the /usr/share/backgrounds/usplash/Butterfly folder.
- Packages are up to date as of 6/14/2020.
It also contains the standard SbK features.
- A Manjaro stable install that is also AUR compatible.
- It is multiarch by default to make running wine games and other 32bit software you may run easier.
- The Spins by Kilz signed repository is enabled for SbK project packages.
- Timeshift autosnap installed. It takes a snapshot before upgrading so any bad upgrades can be easily reversed.
- Bloatware has been removed (HP printer software and others).
- Flat packs and snaps are not installed. The back ends are also not installed but can be installed by the user.
- The repository points to the new project url of repo.spinsbykilz.com
