Webconverger Logo UK-based developer Kai Hendry has announced the release of version 7 of his Webconverger browser only operating system. According to Hendry, Webconverger 7.0 is a huge milestone that sees the latest version of the Debian-based web kiosk project get upgraded from Debian 5.0, code named "Lenny", to Debian 6.0 "Squeeze".

Compared to the previous 6.2 release, version 7 sees the inclusion of the latest Firefox 3.6.12 browser, Adobe Flash Player updates and even faster booting. Additionally, Splashy has been replaced by Plymouth for managing the boot splash. The developer is also offering customisation services for a fee to those who want to, for example, use Google's Chrome web browser instead of Firefox.

More details about the release can be found in the release notes and in the change log. Webconverger 7 is available to download from the project's site as a 255 MB ISO image. Instructions for how to burn the Webconverger ISO to a CD or copy the image to a USB flash drive are provided.
