Tiny Core lead developer Robert Shingledecker has released version 3.2 of Tiny Core Linux. Based on the Linux kernel, Tiny Core Linux 3.2 features version 1.17.2 of the BusyBox tool collection and features changes to System Stats and the AppBrowser.

AppsAudit OnDemand logic has been updated so that a reboot is no longer required when moving apps form OnBoot to OnDemand. Other changes include various bug fixes and improved language translation support in Appsaudit and Swapfile. The developer notes that users will need to re-make any ondemand items created under LXDE prior to version 3.2.

Tiny Core is a minimal Linux distribution that weighs in at just over 10 MB in size. The "tiny frugal" desktop distribution features the BusyBox tool collection and a minimal graphics system based on Tiny X and JWM. The core can run entirely in RAM, allowing a very fast boot. With the help of online repositories, Tiny Core Linux can be expanded to include additional applications.

More information about the release, including a full list of changes, can be found in the official release announcement. Tiny Core Linux 3.2 is available to download (direct download) as an ISO image from the project's site. Tiny Core can be run or installed from a LiveCD or LiveUSB drive, and an installation guide is provided. At the time of writing, the project's home page had yet to be updated with the new version.
