2019-09-12 NEWDistribution Release: Funtoo Linux 1.4
Daniel Robbins has announced the release of Funtoo Linux 1.4, a source-based distribution created by the original founder of Gentoo Linux in 2009. This version is probably the last one in the 1.x series as the author of the announcements suggests that work on Funtoo Linux 2.0 will begin shortly: “Funtoo Linux 1.4 is now to be considered officially released. Some changes in the last several weeks include: updating to GCC 9.2.0 to address an upstream compilation bug; additional testing/fixing of dependencies; new debian-sources and debian-sources-lts kernels; debian-sources-lts will now default to using ‘custom-cflags’ USE by default – this will give you a more optimized kernel; -march settings from your subarch mix-in will be applied to your kernel compilation as well – this appears to result in a noticeable performance improvement. I will continue to update documentation on the wiki relating to 1.4, and of course, 1.4 development continues with pull requests and issues reported to bugs.funtoo.org. I hope to start 2.0 development in about a month.” Here is the brief release announcement, with further technical details provided in the release notes. As usual, the Funtoo project does not provide bootable live or installation ISO images; potential users need to boot a live CD/DVD image to initiate the Funtoo Linux installation process. See the project’s installation guide for further information.
About Funtoo Linux
Funtoo Linux is a Gentoo-based distribution developed by Daniel Robbins (the founder and former project leader of Gentoo Linux) and a core team of developers, built around a basic vision of improving the core technologies in Gentoo Linux.

2019-01-08 Distribution Release: Funtoo Linux 1.3
Daniel Robbins has announced the release of Funtoo Linux 1.3. Funtoo, a variant of Gentoo Linux, is an distribution that builds packages automatically from the source code. It was launched in 2009, shortly after Robbins left Gentoo Linux, a project he had founded in 2000. Version 1.3 brings a deprecation of “multilib” support, among other changes: “The ability for 64-bit versions of Funtoo Linux to run legacy 32-bit applications has been deprecated, so that Funtoo Linux for 64-bit CPUs is now 64-bit only, what we used to offer as a separate “pure64” build. This was done because 32-bit support was originally created as a stop-gap measure 15 years ago to allow for a seamless transition to 64-bit computing, and we believe the time has come to shed this ongoing maintenance burden and focus efforts that have historically been spent on 32-bit compatibility in other areas.” Read the release announcement and release notes for more information. The Funtoo project does not provide bootable live or installation ISO images; users are instead directed towards the Gentoo-based SystemRescueCd to initiate any new installation. Optimised builds (or “stages”) are available for various AMD and Intel processors, as well as the ARM and ARM64 architectures and Raspberry Pi and ODROID single-board computers – visit the project’s “Subarches” page for a complete list. The comprehensive installation manual can be found here.
