The Ark Linux team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the KDE centric desktop distribution Ark Linux 2006.1 - including KDE 3.5.4, Amarok 1.4.1, Kopete 0.12.1 with a hotfix for connecting to ICQ after the latest protocol change, a fully KDE-ified OpenOffice.org 2.0.3, and X.org 7.1.1. Another highlight in this release is the KDE based "rpmhandler", a tool that makes installing 3rd party packages easier than ever before.
Ark Linux 2006.1 is available both as an installation CD and a Live CD.
Ark Linux is a Free Software project that exists and grows only because of the help of many volunteers that donate their time and effort. Ark Linux is always looking for new volunteers and contributions, whether it is help with coding, bug fixing or reporting, helping with support, writing documentation, translations, promotion, money, hardware, etc. All contributions are gratefully appreciated and eagerly accepted. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
