4MLinux 27.0 STABLE released.

 4MLinux 27.0

The status of the 4MLinux 27.0 series has been changed to STABLE. Edit your documents with LibreOffice and GNOME Office (AbiWord 3.0.2, GIMP 2.10.8, Gnumeric 1.12.43), share your files using DropBox 61.4.95, surf the Internet with Firefox 63.0.3 and Chromium 70.0.3538.67, stay in touch with your friends via Thunderbird 60.3.2 and Skype for Web, enjoy your music collection with Audacious 3.10, watch your favorite videos with VLC 3.0.4 and mpv 0.28.2, play games powered by Mesa 18.1.4 and Wine 3.20. You can also setup the 4MLinux LAMP Server (Linux 4.14.80, Apache 2.4.37, MariaDB 10.3.10, PHP 5.6.38 and PHP 7.2.12). Perl 5.26.2, Python 2.7.15, and Python 3.6.5 are also available.

As always, the new major release has some new features: optional support for AV1 video coding (encoding via FFmpeg and decoding via VLC and mpv), an option to disable PulseAudio with one click (important for those who use 4MLinux to play classic video games such as DOOM), better support for display drivers when 4MLinux is running in KVM (important for those who use a VNC client to manage 4MServer). LazPaint (small yet powerfull raster image editor with layers) and Blender (professional 3D computer graphics software) have been added as downloadable extensions. Additionally, some good news for gamers: more engines available for XBoard (GNU Chess, GNU Shogi, Fairy-Max) as well as more video games to play (Duke3D, Liero, Strifle). A few small terminal-based games have been added, too.
