First post-8.0 Zenwalk Current - 15 oct 2016

Here's the first post-8.0 "current" ISO. Along with many packages updates from upstream and Zenwalk, you'll get the MPV media player out of the box, some improvements in the setup (new disk partitioning dialog) and the ZenENCFS privacy folder encrypting tool (so that you won't have to put your hardware into the microwave oven any more to remain anonymous).

Have fun :)

ISO is here :

MPV replaces Mplayer

MPV is the new default media player in Zenwalk. MPV is a fork of mplayer2 and MPlayer. It shares some features with the former projects while introducing many more. MPV uses ffmpeg as backend library for media processing, with no code redundancy : so nearly any existing audio/video format can be played. Unique to Zenwalk : I have developed a "single instance" launcher using the MPV remote command API, and a Thunar menu popup to get detailed media information. Enjoy !!
