ROSA Desktop è una distribuzione Linux basata su Mandriva che utilizza una versione altamente personalizzata di KDE per offrire una migliore esperienza di utilizzo all’utente. Viene sviluppata anche una versione enterprise per Server (“Enterprise Desktop”) basata però su Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Versione R5 “Desktop Fresh”

Questa versione contiene:

  • KDE4 desktop environment has been updated to version 4.14.3.
  • Firefox has been updated to version 34.0. ROSA repositories also provide Firefox ESR 24.8.0 with classical UI theme.
  • Fixed video playback problems in KLook and TimeFrame caused by migration to GStreamer 1.0 API.
  • Fixed issues with video preview in Dolphin (fixes have been developed for KDE upstream bugs: #334924, #339882, #337033, #337107).
  • Fixed problem with copying large files (>2Gb) by means of kamera KIO slave (KDE upstream bug #340908).
  • K3b settings in “Configure Your Desktop” have been moved to the root section.
  • A new section named “Games->Emulators” has been added to kickstart menu. All game emulators have been moved to these category.
  • Added support for booting with Secure Boot mode enabled (how to turn Secure Boot on without reinstalling).
  • The LTS kernel used by default has been updated to version 3.14.25. Users can also find the new 3.17.6 kernel in a separate repository.
  • OpenCV libraries have been updated to version 2.4.10 and switched to GStreamer 1.0 API. This allowed to eliminate Digikam crashes caused by simultaneous usage of GStreamer 1.0 and 0.10.
  • Support for “status notifier item” mode for systray elements has been added to Qt4. In order to activate this mode, one should install sni-qt package which provides systemtrayicon plugin for Qt4.
  • Python3 bindings have been added for Qt4 and Qt5.
  • Users can now setup automated launch of TRIM for SSD drives by installing ssd-utils package. By default, TRIM will be launched once a week.
  • Fixed work of Samba on machines with long names.
  • Fixed issue with printing on Samba printers.
  • Fixed automated launch of Shorewall with default settings.
  • Added installer option to skip bootloader installation (for those who wish to keep their existing bootloader).
  • Mesa has been updated to version 10.3.3.
  • NVidia proprietary video drivers (nvidia340) have been updated to version 340.65.
  • AMD proprietary video drivers (fglrx) have been updated to version 14.301.1001 (corresponds to AMD Catalyst 14.9).
  • Support for video cards with hybrid Intel+AMD graphics has been added. We have also fixed issues with configuring of Intel+NVidia hybrid graphics on several video cards.
  • Optimizations in Nvidia proprietary video driver that perform on-the-fly modifications of the executable code are now disabled by default since with current versions of drivers they lead to application crash (for example, in case of Pipelight and FS-UAE programs).
  • A lot of issues have been fixed in configuration tools for AMD Radeon video cards.
