Pioneer Linux 3.0.2 has been released

Technalign, Inc. announced today the release of the final release candidates of the latest versions of Pioneer Basic and Pioneer Explorer. Pioneer Basic and Explorer are LiveCDs that allow users to test the operating system before installation.

Pioneer Basic has a 7-year lifecycle while Pioneer Explorer is geared towards people who require a stable operating system in the community without support. Technalign is announcing that the Explorer line will now provide a 3-year lifecycle, while it's new Warrior release will take the place of Explorer as the new test bed. Pioneer Stagecoach includes both a full workstation and server functionality and is a perfect learning tool.

The Pioneer Explorer and Renegade offerings include the LinSpire CNR client preinstalled. Technalign requests that users testing CNR report any issues that may occur with this pilot. Also included is Nero Linux 3 preinstalled, which offers Blue Laser technology for those with the proper media installed. Nero requires a registration and may be purchased on the Pioneer e-commerce system.

"These versions of Pioneer Basic and Explorer remain a downstream from Ubuntu" Dianne Ursini, CEO, explained. "Pioneer Warrior will be released in the first quarter of 2008 allowing the transition of Pioneer Explorer, Renegade and Basic to move into a new direction."

The current final release candidates all use KDE, which has a simpler interface for Windows users to transition to Pioneer. It is expected that Renegade will be released early next week with a Gnome interface to meet the community demand for a different interface. No decisions have been made as of yet to include the Gnome desktop as a Basic offering wrapped with support.
