Welcome to the Cucumber Linux Distribution
The Cucumber Linux 1.0 Release Candidate 1 is now Available
The first release candidate has arrived! This release candidate fixes many bugs from for beta version, adds serial installation support and adds multilib support on x86_64. As a release candidate, this version has the potential to become the official 1.0 release if no critical bugs are found.

1.0 Beta 1 is now Available
The first beta of Cucumber Linux is finally here! As we move into beta, the primary focus will shift from actively developing the distribution to debugging it in preperation for a stable release.

Snapshot 2017-04-22b is now Available
A new snapshot is available. This snapshot adds GIMP and fixes several bugs. Additionally, the installer was largely rewritten which should fix quite a few installation related problems. Also the beta should be ready soon!

Snapshot 2017-03-17a is now Available
Another snapshot is available. This snapshot adds support for the XFCE Desktop Environment and many common X11 applications, such as LibreOffice and VLC. We are now beta bound! There are perhaps a dozen more packages that need to be built, and then we will have a feature freeze and be off to beta. No promises here, but there should be a beta coming out in the next month.

Snapshot 2017-01-06a is now Available
A new snapshot is now available. This snapshot introduces (amongst other things) support for several common daemons (including Apache, PHP, MariaDB and Rsync) and the X Window System. This marks a huge step towards a beta release; the remaining work that needs to be done before the beta release now consists only of building the XFCE desktop environment and common X11 applications.
Starting with this snapshot the distribution has grown too large to fit on a single CD. In order to deal with this dilema, we will be releasing two ISO images per architecture for each release from now on (opposed to the one CD image that has been released thus far). The first image is the basic ISO. This image contains only the base package groups, but still fits on a single CD. The second is the full ISO which contains all of the available packages. It is over 700 MB in size though, so it will require a DVD or USB flash drive. Hopefully this will be an appropriate solution to this problem.
