The Chakra Development Team has announced the release of Chakra 2011.12. Chakra is one the most popular Arch Linux forks. This version is Linux 3.1 and KDE 4.7. With this release KDE is updated to 4.7.4, kernel to Linux 3.1.4. The sound group has been rebuild/updated, latest networkmanagement and mesa-stack are also included. Chakra is now offering a DVD and CD version.
Edn (code name of Chakra) has followed the KDE 4.7 releases, and with KDE 4.8 a new name will be used. If you are planning to download Chakra bear in mind that the CD version comes with a text-editor, file-manager, web-browser and a simple media player installed, no further apps, no language packs are pre-installed.
The DVD version includes all the language packs, most of standard KDE apps, libre-office 3.4.4, tomahawk, xbmc, calibre, printer support, minitube, k3b to name a few.
So pick your version accordingly. We will soon be publishing a review of Chakra to see what kind of KDE experience it offers.
