This is the second preview of GoboLinux 017. It updates several system packages and features the following improvements over 017 alpha:

  • A new model for recipe management based on Git. Users can now submit pull requests on GitHub or use the revamped ContributeRecipe tool to automate that process. Recipes contributed that way are made available to other users as soon as PRs are approved. The Compile tool is fully aware of that new workflow.
  • Migration of AbsTk (our widget toolkit) to Qt5: we have a graphical installer again.
  • Removal of FiboSandbox, as we have been depending on UnionSandbox (a unionfs-based sandbox) for a long time. GoboLinux Rootless, which has been deprecated for several years now, was the only reason we kept it around for so long.
  • Massive simplification of Scripts and Compile along with assorted bug fixes.
