Our latest version is ready for download. It includes a lot of updates,
along with an overhaul of the development process -compilation scripts
and build jails- which was largely upgraded to simplify automation.
This improvements made it easier to apply changes to the upstream
packages, leading to a much more polished result.

Along with many bugfixes, Slaine comes with a new boot manager for the
live images, an improved installer which showcases the project
highlights, and new programs like the Remmina remote desktop client,
the social network client Gwibber or the backup tool Deja-dup. 

The web browser received several changes to improve speed -enabling
http pipelining and other methods-, privacy -blocking third party
cookies by default and moving to Duck Duck Go as default search
engine-, and usability -the preinstalled FlashVideoReplacer plugin
allows to watch videos from YouTube, Vimeo and many others. This
improvements have been backported to 4.0 LTS.
