4MLinux 16.0 STABLE released.

Default desktop in 4MLinux 16.0

Major change in the core of the system, which now uses GNU Compiler Collection 5.3.0 to compile programs designed for the i686 architecture. Users can enjoy newly added network applications: uGet (download manager, a front-end to cURL), rTorrent (powerful CLI BitTorrent client), Grsync (backup utility, a front-end to rsync), and gFTP (old but still quite usable FTP client). Additionally, Chrome web browser (which was one of so called downloadable extensions in 4MLinux) has been replaced with Chromium (in March 2016 Google will drop its support for the 32-bit version of Chrome). And finally, the way in which 4MLinux handles compressed archives has been greatly improved (see the 4MLinux Blog for details).
