PCLinuxOS quarterly ISO updates released
The PCLinuxOS developers have released the quarterly ISO updates for the GNOME, KDE and LXDE editions of their Linux distribution. The 2010.07 releases include a number of desktop and package updates, but don't add any new features to the operating system.
The updated ISOs are based on the 18.104.22.168 Linux kernel and the included desktop environments have been updated to version 2.30.2 of GNOME and the latest 4.4.5 release of KDE SC. Package updates include Firefox 3.6.6, version 3.0.5 of the Thunderbird email client and GIMP 2.6.9. The Pidgin instant messenger application has been updated to version 2.7.1, closing a 3 year old MSN bug. According to the developers, other editions such as those running the GNOME ZenMini and Enlightenment E-17 desktops, will "follow shortly".
Users that currently have PCLinuxOS 2010 installed and regularly update their systems should have received all of the above updates. PCLinuxOS 2010.07 is an updated version of the release for fresh installations, for example on new systems.
