Zenwalk Current 2023 is out !

Zenwalk Current is the rolling release of Zenwalk GNU Linux. 

Current status seems stable enough for an ISO to be published, so here we go ;)

As usual this edition provides a complete package rebuild from upstream Slackware and Zenwalk specific packages.

The desktop has been updated to use latest Adwaita themes featuring a unified look for GTK4, GTK3, GTK2 and QT applications.

On application side, this release introduces Syncthing for realtime folder synchronization with any device from Linux, Android to IOS and Windows (think about it as an Open Source private OneDrive).

The desktop is built upon the latest stable XFCE environment with the one of a kind original "dock centric" Zenwalk layout. Flatpak package management is installed by default and ready to use.

Zenwalk aim to be a best of breed media OS. Several new applications and media frameworks have been added : Navidrome Music Server, Jellyfin Media Center (just type "netpkg jellyfin"), Lollypop Music Player, Rygel DLNA Server, ... Pipewire is the default sound system, completely replacing Pulseaudio.

The ISO can be downloaded here :
