Today Vector Linux has released the RC3 of VectorLinux 5.9 standard. It is almost ready for final. It have updated firefox, seamonkey and xfce-4 to their latest releases.
There is new artwork and several new tools to further streamline the user experience. The new tools include an all new control panel and a very easy to use wifi configuration utility. Several bugs have been squashed including the Terminal crash and the shutdown problem. This release also included tuxonice to help with laptop standby and hibernation problems.
The developement team decided with the upgrade to xfce-4.4.2 that they better do a RC3 instead of going straight to final, just in case. They are very pleased with this release and they think you will be too.
