Bodhi Linux is Blossoming

Not even three months ago Bodhi Linux was nothing more than a thought in my mind. Today Bodhi is a thriving young project. If you have visited our team page lately or seen our news posts then you know our small team has been steadily growing.

We are happy to welcome four new members to our team.
  • Mark Strawser (ottermaton) is taking charge of Bodhi documentation and our get software page.
  • Agustin Verdegal (Agust) is the one responsible for all of the wonderful Enlightenment themes for Bodhi.
  • Chris Bolton (chris-kun) is going to head building an Arch Linux based live CD in Bodhi fashion
I am also especially pleased to welcome Christopher Michael (devilhorns) to our team. Christopher has been working with the Enlightenment development team for nearly ten years. He is working hand in hand with the Bodhi team and community to get any issues that occur with the desktop corrected ASAP. He will also be coding some new things that will allow Bodhi to provide a better desktop experience for everyone.

Our beta release on the 8th has been received well by most and we could not be happier with the response. Even though we are still not list on Distro Watch we have averaged over 250 downloads a day for the last twelve days between source forge and torrents.

Always looking forward to the future, our release candidate (0.1.5) is scheduled to release at the end of this month on the 30th. This release will include a number of usability improvements and package updates. Most notably the 0.1.5 release will bring two new profiles to the table, one the includes Ecomorph enabled by default and another tailored to tablet computers and netbook books:

Enlightenment's customizable on screen keyboard is one of the best Linux has to offer:

Watch Unity, Enlightenment is ready for the tablet computers :)
