ROSA Desktop Fresh R6 Release Schedule

Сообщение dsch » 04 июл 2015, 15:59

This post is mainly directed to the administrators, moderators and other ROSA staff.

I would like to see you implement a section at the ROSA official website or at the wiki, announcing the release schedule of your products.
This is not just for the curiosity of the users and there are cases, when it is very important!

Suppose someone has several systems and is considering reinstalling their OS and re-configuring them.
It is very annoying to see a new release out 3-4 days after finished.

Is also nice to announce your goals for the next release in order to get a preliminary opinion of the userbase.
  • - Will ROSA Desktop Fresh R6 use kernel 4.xx?
  • - Will ROSA Desktop Fresh R6 ship with KDE Plasma 5?
  • - Does the ROSA artist team have any plans for updating the ROSA theme? (new icons, etc...)
  • - What about the simple welcome, rocketbar and other ROSA apps, are you planning any updates, are they going to be reshaped for KDE5?
Those are some of the questions, that I think concern a lot of users.

If I am wrong please let know. Actually every user of the forum is welcomed to take a position, positive or negative!

ROSA R6 should be released in few days (currently ISOs are in QA)

ROSA Fresh, from R1 to R4 was based on a core called rosa2012.1:
the base of rosa 2012.1 was used for two years

ROSA Fresh from release R5 is based on a core called rosa2014.1:
this should be used as the current base for two years, upto end 2016
rosa2014.1 starts serving ROSA Fresh R5, then R6, R7 and so on...

Every Rx can be updated to the following Rx+1, in this easy way R5 will become R6, R6 will become R7, simply updating it
There is no worry of changes, because are only safe updates

If you want to install from a freshly released ISO, there are available "daily ISOs",
the product category for ROSA KDE is #86
Extended Edition ROSA 2014.1 with non-free and restricted
https://abf.rosalinux.ru/platforms/rosa ... roducts/86
These have an automatic basic test, but there may be rare issues, none QA for these,
and none official support...
In my experience, I've installed from these, the most of these ISOs are good enough!

There are other different product, rosa2014.1 core based, some of these are Community projects,
you can download ISOs with Gnome, Lxde, LxQt, others, you can access to all of these ISOs from:
https://abf.rosalinux.ru/platforms/rosa2014.1/products/


About Your questions:
  • ROSA R6 will use the well tested LongTerm Kernel 3.14 LTS
    but is possible to install newer kernels, adding kernel personal repositories,
    you can find kernels ranging from 3.15, 3.17, 3.18 LTS, 3.19, 4.0, 4.1 LTS

    Kernel Farm for ROSA... from this Topic you can be updated with the kernels
    http://forum.rosalab.ru/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=1223

    at the latest msg, you can read about the current kernel, now is 4.1.2 LTS
    http://forum.rosalab.ru/viewtopic.php?f ... 200#p47431

    Be carefull that the new kernels could not be satisfied by the proprietary drivers,
    so, If you use any /non-free dkms as nvidia, ati, broadcom, there may be troubles,
    before try a new kernel is better to verify driver versions with kernel compatibility,
    instead, if you use free open drivers, there are none troubles with newest kernels.
  • KDE Plasma 5 is still too young, too unstable, to be the base of R6 KDE
    (There is the chance to test the Plasma 5, but we don't suggest this as daily use)
  • When ROSA will jump officially to Plasma 5, the most of ROSA stuff
    should be updated
  • The theme for R6 is the same of R5, apart small changes in the bar,
    some fixes into icons, other small thing...
    I've heard that new ROSA stuff and theme elements shoud be updated for Plasma 5

Only unofficial Plasma 5 ISOs until Fall 2016 (when we switch from rosa2014.1 to rosa2016.1). Until that KDE 4 will be the main ROSA's DE.

Unofficial Plasma 5 ISOs can be downloaded from: https://abf.rosalinux.ru/platforms/rosa ... oducts/137

Plasma 5 is not complete yet (no RocketBar port etc).
Intel Core i7-6700 / 8 Gb RAM / GeForce GTX 750 Ti / Rosa 2016.1 i586
