The Chakra Project team is delighted to announce the first release of Chakra Fritz. "Fritz" is the name of a series of Chakra releases that follows the KDE Software Compilation 4.11 series and is dedicated to the memory of Fritz_Van_Tom.
With this ISO we offer KDE SC 4.11.1. In this release, many areas have received a number of improvements that affect multiple applications; most notably a speed boost on akonadi. The Plasma Workspaces 4.11 will receive long term support as the KDE team focuses on the technical transition to Frameworks 5.
You may have noticed that there is no new artwork with this new series as it is usually the case, since it wasn't ready by the time of the release. Hopefully work on the artwork will be completed soon, so we can include it on a future release. Of course you can always install it through our repositories when it becomes available.
This new release includes some refinements as well as new features:
There are some minor bugs present in this ISO that we could not fix in time because they would delay this release even more. We decided offering a new ISO was much more urgent as the previous one was really oudated. Among them:
- Selecting homerun in Kapudan will not add it to the panel.
- Not entering a username in Tribe (our installer) will result in an error message about KDM.
Have in mind that the partition manager still has troubles with GPT partition tables. To workaround this, please follow our wiki.
The Extra repository provides the must-have GTK-based applications with their dependencies and it is disabled by default. To enable it, please follow this step by step guide. For more information, check Managing Repositories in the documentation.
In addition, by popular community demand, we now also offer the ISO file through an official torrent. You will find the link to it on the Get page.
Once installed, Chakra will provide you the latest versions of your favorite software:
To create reliable installation media, please follow the instructions in the wiki. Chakra ISO images do not support unetbootin, and DVD images need a burn speed no higher than 4×.
