Saturday, Nov 11, 2023 by Daniele Rondina macaroni, release, phoenix

We are happy to announce that after three intense months we have finally completed the migration of Macaroni Phoenix to a Funtoo Next based system. This is a really good milestone for us because after two years we have been a big step ahead, before becoming an independent project, entering in the Docker Sponsored program, and now with the first big release upgrade. The world is buggy so we are sure that something will be also present in this first big step but we hope the community and the users will be happy about how things grow.

Macaroni OS Phoenix 23.05 is out!

Monday, May 15, 2023 by Daniele Rondina macaroni, release, phoenix

We are happy to announce the new release Phoenix 23.05 that contains the first significant change needed to migrate the Phoenix tree from the Funtoo release 1.4-prime to the Next release, an activity that will be completed for the subsequent releases. In particular, with this release is dropped the support of Python 2.7 in EOL for a lot of months. The package dev-lang-2.7/python is yet available because a lot of Funtoo packages depend on it for compilation but it’s discouraged the use.

Macaroni OS Phoenix 23.03.02 is out!

Tuesday, Mar 21, 2023 by Daniele Rondina macaroni, release, phoenix

After receiving the first notifications we caught an issue in our last ISOs related to the split of the Grub package done to divide the grub-emu binary. It’s been removed for error the Grub’s patches related to ext4 1.47.0 and of Macaroni initramfs naming. Without the patch the default installation fails on setup grub because it’s used ext4 and an unknown filesystem error is generated by grub. The new ISOs will be available in two days.

Macaroni OS Phoenix 23.03.01 is out!

Monday, Mar 20, 2023 by Daniele Rondina macaroni, release, phoenix

While we have worked on preparing the new ISOs for the release 23.03 we have figured out that was better to bump a new release with the changes of the Calamares plugin to migrate our ISOs to kernel 6.1. In particular, the ISOs for Desktops have now the kernel 6.1.18 with built-in integration with new Realtek wifi cards. Unluckily not yet the cards 8852b e 8852be that will be available on branch 6.

Saturday, Mar 11, 2023 by Daniele Rondina macaroni, release, phoenix

Finally, after two months of hard work, the release Phoenix 23.03 is out and is the first Desktop release under the new domain. In these two months, we had to follow infrastructure issues (broken hard disks) and create the new Macaroni network. This is one of the reasons we have skipped the release of February. We want to thank again the GARR consortium that is now our primary mirror under our CDN and this will permit in the next weeks to expose again the ISOs download page and our LXD images.

After 1 year of incubation under the Funtoo Foundation, the Macaroni OS has now its domain and its infrastructure. Really, thanks to the Funtoo Foundation and Daniel Robbins for its support that helped to Macaroni OS to be here today. From the infrastructure aspect nothing is changed, all compilation tasks are executed over MottainaiCI cluster but with less resource power for now. We hope that the community will help us to maintain the infrastructure costs with donations over our Github Sponsor or with VMs donations for compilation.
