In what we can now call it a tradition, we celebrate the Software
Freedom Day by publishing our latest release: Trisquel GNU/Linux 5.0
STS, codename Dagda.

Today we publish both the standard GNOME based, and the lightweight,
LXDE based Trisquel Mini editions. Current Trisquel 4.5 users can
upgrade using the update-manager application, without the need for
reinstallation. Advanced installations -server, RAID/LVM, encrypted,
etc- can be done using the netinstall images. Two more editions, one
based on KDE and other using the educational environment Sugar are on
the way.

The standard edition includes, among many others, the following

  * Linux-libre 2.6.38
  * GNOME 2.6.32
  * LibreOffice 3.3.3
  * Abrowser (our unbranded Mozilla based web browser) 6.0.2

We would like to thank the FSF, and their campaigns intern Jonathan
Nadeau for helping us improve this release's accessibility support.
Among other changes, our international DVD boots now with a screen
reader on by default, allowing blind users to run or even install the
system without assistance. This change will also be applied to the
system loaded in the FSF membership cards.

Download it now, and spread it around!

And remember, you can help this project continue by donating, buying a
gift in our stores, or by becoming a supporting associate member.
