The awesome Nitrux project announced Nitrux 2.1.0 which brings much-needed application stack updates and an important change for iOS devices.
Nitrux is a stunning Linux Distribution that is based on Debian with a modified KDE Plasma desktop. This eye-candy, yet powerful distro recently became popular with its out-of-the-box themes, looks and performance.
The development team is super active in this distro and following the plan, we have the latest Nitrux 2.1.0 which is a major point release.
Nitrux 2.1.0 – What’s New
If you are an Apple fan, then good news for you. Nitrux 2.1.0 makes it easier to access your Apple devices with the fuse FUSE module for iPhone and iPod Touch devices. This package is now included in this release, hence you can experience streamlined device access with Nitrux OS.
On the hardware aspect, Nitrux 2.1.0 also added support for Broadcom 43xx devices, and Intel SOF devices which I am sure users will benefit from.
The default application stack is updated to their respective following versions:
- KDE Plasma 5.24.4
- KDE Frameworks 5.92.0
- KDE Gear 21.12.3
- Firefox 98.0.2
- LibreOffice 188.8.131.52
The team earlier included the brand new MAUI Shell as an experimental session on the login screen. But honestly, it was buggy and hence the team decided to remove it for now, until it becomes a little stable.
Moreover, the default Xanmod Kernel is updated to the 5.16.16 version with bug fixes and updates. If you need the mainline Kernel, you can also install it via the repo that you can find at the top of this page.
Overall, a good release from the team which you can download from the below link. The team always recommends a fresh install. In case you are running the earlier version, you should read this note before you plan to upgrade.
