I started the development of the next version of Virage, Virage 3 Beowulf, based on the TESTING branch of Devuan.
This environment is only for testing purposes, as it’s still on active development.
Virage 3 Beowulf will be released as “STABLE” at the same time Devuan Beowulf will be available and ready por production.
A lot of changes were made for this version:
1 – New Kernel: XanMod 4.19 Real Time kernel, with better performance and hardware compatibility
2 – Ardour 5 replaced by a trial shareware of REAPER
3 – All multimedia bundle updated to current versions (Hydrogen, Guitarix, LMMS, etc…)
4 – KXStudio repositories added by default
5 – Carla, installed by default
6 – New configuration made for JACK server to provide lowest latency and real time processing
7 – XFCE updated to 4.12.5
8 – More effects and distortions added to Guitarix
9 – Locale selection bug on XFCE4 fixed
10 – Realtek firmware for wired and wi-fi cards added by default
11 – Refractainstaller updated to last version
12 – Better compatibility with Windows VST plugins
13 – Totally focused on audio, dropping video support, so Kdenlive were removed and a lot of libs video-related
14 – Unnecesary packages purged and removed, cleaner filesystem
