PC/OS 2009.1 to be shipped to final testing

PC/OS 2009.1 will be shipped to final beta testing on January 5th. The testing will be completed for a general release date of March 1, 2009. Releases will soon be coming few and far between. We are expecting a 2009.2 release around October 2009. With this release we tighten up everything visually, funtionality wise and yes, its tightened up. For starters Boot Up Manager is included in this release to cover run time configurations. No more sysv-rc-config on Workstation and Desktop. There is a new GDM and a new Usplash for those that were complaining about the old defaults. the icons have been tweaked as has the default wallpaper. The system has been totally updated. Some applications have been updated, some havent. Sylpheed is the new default client in the OpenDesktop release only, Fyre and Xaos have been added to the graphics offering on the OpenWorkstation release.

One reason for the slowdown in the 32 bit release is so we can concentrate on the x64 build and get that out the door.

Here are some screenshots of PC/OS 2009.1. A couple of UI changes. The top bar hosts the menu, notes app and the clipboard. The iconbox taskmanager, System tray, volume, date and time. The bottom bar is used as a launch surface for users to place their comonly used apps. Show desktop, System Navigator applet, the default apps will be Firefox, Mail Client, Terminal, desktop switcher and the trash applet.
