Phoenix 23.12 and Eagle 23.12!

Monday, Dec 25, 2023| Tags: macaroni, release, phoenix, eagle

Macaroni OS is about two years old and we want to thank all the people who helped to reach this result.

Thank you!

For this reason, without to have a complete build pipeline for a new version of the Phoenix release, we want to tag the release 23.12 of Macaroni Phoenix with anothers big steps:

  1. This releaes contains the upgrade of ZFS to version 2.2.2 with important bugfix of the release 2.2. We suggest to upgrade to this release really soon. The details are in the official site with important fix for a data corruption bug.

  2. We are happy to announce that after an intensive work, Macaroni supply a KDE based ISO! We consider this first integration experimental but there are a lot of applications of the KDE family and we love the KDE Connect tool that permits to integration remote control from mobile devices or The ISO by default uses a Wayland based integration related to a patched Xorg release with the same version available in Funtoo where the Xwayland binary was yet supplied by the same package. The new versions of the Xorg server supply two different tarballs for Xwayland and X11 and we hope to autogen all these stuff in 2024. Considering this, could be possible that could be better to use the X11 implementation if you have issues with your video card, but could be helpfull to receive feedback about how it works from users in our Bug tracker.

  3. With the release of the new ZFS version and the new LXD version is now possible to create storage pool vdev where setup a specific filesytem, like XFS for a native integration for Docker over LXD/Incus. The new Topix node uses this solution to build packages!

  4. This release contains the experimental package of the Incus containers manager at version 0.3, the fork project started from LXD. We hope to complete the autogen file of this package soon and to add the package in the Funtoo Community.

  5. The package neofetch now contains the Macaroni OS patch with our logo, package that will be replaced by hyfetch in the near future. The original project (`dylanaraps/neofetch) seems no longer maintained. See our PR for details.

So, before the news about our new releases, we wish to all Macaroni and Funtoo users an Happy New Year!
