4MLinux 24.0 STABLE released.

 4MLinux 24.0

The status of the 4MLinux 24.0 series has been changed to STABLE. Edit your documents with LibreOffice 6.0.0.1 and GNOME Office (AbiWord 3.0.2, GIMP 2.8.22, Gnumeric 1.12.38), share your files using DropBox 43.4.49, surf the Internet with Firefox 58.0.2 and Chromium 64.0.3282.119, stay in touch with your friends via Thunderbird 52.6.0 and Skype for Web, enjoy your music collection with Audacious 3.9, watch your favorite videos with VLC 3.0.0 and MPlayer SVN-r37946, play games powered by Mesa 17.1.4 and Wine 3.1. You can also setup the 4MLinux LAMP Server (Linux 4.14.18, Apache 2.4.29, MariaDB 10.2.12, PHP 5.6.33 and PHP 7.2.2). Perl 5.26.0 and Python 2.7.13 are also available. 

Huge amount of hardware-related improvements: added support for tablet devices (via kernel and X.Org drivers), added support for digital cameras (via libgphoto2 with gtkam and its GIMP plugin), added support for PPPoE (via kernel drivers and PPPD), improved support for UVC webcams (via v4l-utils and Guvcview), improved support for sound cards (via PulseAudio with pavucontrol), improved support for wireless cards (via kernel drivers and firmware), improved support for mice and joysticks (via kernel drivers and Joystick Calibrator).

And finally the biggest change: there are now two ISO images available for download: 4MLinux-24.0-32bit.iso and 4MServer-24.0-64bit.iso. The latter one is a multi-lib system running a 64-bit LAMP suite (Linux, Apache, MariaDB, and PHP).
