Tiny Core Linux 3.4 arrives
Tiny Core lead developer Robert Shingledecker has released version 3.4 of Tiny Core Linux. Based on the 188.8.131.52 Linux kernel, Tiny Core Linux 3.4 features a variety of updates, including additional options in the mount tool (mnttool).
Other changes include improvements to AppsAudit, adding new multi-select extension updates and MD5 checking, as well as new wallpaper gradients and an updated colour preview. The Fluff file manager has also been updated to version 0.8.5, which includes integrated file type and associations, as well as several user interface (UI) improvements.
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 details about the release, including a full list of changes, can be found in the forum release announcement. Tiny Core Linux 3.4 is available to download as an ISO image file from the project's site. Tiny Core can be run or installed from a LiveCD or LiveUSB drive, and an installation guide is provided.
