Latest ISO snapshots have been sent to Beta Tester and Crew tiers of the @Solus OpenCollective. Nothing especially fancy this week, mostly some updated packages, but if you wanna save on a bit of updates since Solus 4.3 you are welcome to nab them.

is the only OS listed under Beginner-friendly in the latest @LinusTech video that is not based on Ubuntu (or in fact, based on any other operating system).

Rest of the video is basically "how to do xyz under PopOS" which is eh, but hey, progress.

Side-note for new users, ReplaySorcery is in the Solus repo and is IMO a better alternative to Shadowplay. No needing to remember to launch OBS Studio, no custom compilation of separate software to act as a source, etc.

Last batch of release testing ISOs have been sent out to @Solus OpenCollective members in the Release Testers, Beta Testers, and Crew tiers. Hoping to see kernel 5.13.1 out soon, after that we are ready to go for a new release. I have everything prepped already 🙂

Solus :budgie: :solus: boosted

It took some work with patching NVIDIA drivers, but 5.13.0 is now in the unstable repo! If you are a brave Solus user and would like to test, I wrote up some details on our forums. Otherwise, assuming no gremlins, everyone else will get it this Friday.

Currently cooking Linux 5.13 for @Solus. No ETA on when it'll land in unstable (then stable), varies based on rebuilds and testing, but excited for all the new hardware support! 💪

Not impressed with Windows 11 and thinking about switching over to Linux? Addicted to World of Warcraft? Well with the power of Lutris, Proton, and the Ajour addon manager in the @Solus repository, you can keep that addiction and not have to compromise on your WoW classic or retail experience!

Want to subject yourself to that odd new panel layout, without all the downsides of Windows?

Voila. Took me like 30 seconds in Budgie on @Solus. You're welcome 😛

Solus 4.3 unstable testing ISOs have now been sent out to our OpenCollective members in the Release Testers, Beta Testers, and Crew tiers. Please be patient with the downloads and as always, thank you all for your amazing support, you're all incredible.

Hey folks, as a result of some toolchain upgrades still being in progress, we are going to defer sync a bit. Plan:

🎉 Push Plasma 5.22.1 on Sat.
🔥 Cook unstable ISOs for Release Testers, Beta Testers, and Crew on Sun.
⏰ Sync next Wed.
😯 Prep for release? Hmm.

- Joshua

@danslerush @gnome In their defense, we do not yet have a new Solus release that ships with GNOME 40. It wouldn't be reasonable to advertise Solus there when someone new would then download Solus GNOME Edition and then see GNOME 3.38.- Joshua

Just uploaded the new weekly ISO snapshots for Beta Testers and Crew tiers for those on the OpenCollective. Emails will be sent out momentarily.

All snapshots have new intel-microcode, kernel 5.12.10 and Mesalib 21.1.2. Other change may vary based on edition. Enjoy!
