Updated Bayanihan ISOs are now ready for download!
Friday, 10 July 2009 17:11

Hello everyone!  Kamusta!

It's been a few months since the latest release of Bayanihan (Kalumbata) and by now some of the software we've bundled in the initial release (Revision0) have already been updated upstream. So here we go -- it's time we update the installer to include these newer versions by default with the release of Bayanihan5 (Kalumbata) -  Revision1.

If you already have an existing installation of Kalumbata don't worry -- YOU DO NOT NEED TO REINSTALL Bayanihan. It's very simple to upgrade your system using the Synaptic Package Manager. You have the choice of either upgrading through the online repository or via the Revision1 installer CD. If you choose to update your system via CD, just click on Add CD-ROM in the Edit menu and follow the instructions on screen.

Cheers and happy FOSSing!  -- by Rage.

 The Bayanihan Team announces the availability of their latest development - BAYANIHAN for Government.

Intended for use in government offices and workstations, this version features commonly used government forms as templates, accessible via the OpenOffice.org menu. Also included are updates to the software packages typically bundled with Bayanihan such as the K Desktop Environment, OpenOffice.org productivity suite, Mozilla FireFox web browser, ClamAV antivirus, K3b CD/DVD burning application, Guarddog firewall utility, the MPlayer multimedia player and the XVidCap screen capturing tool. There is also improved support, out of the box, for various wireless devices, peripherals and printers as well as plug and surf capability for popular 3G wireless devices.

Users of this new OS will enjoy a more streamlined and user-friendly graphical installer with default, expert and rescue modes as well as a memory testing utility for checking the system's physical memory. New software packages have also been included in the default installation such as Ekiga for VOIP and videoconferencing, KNetworkManager for automatic configuration of network connections, Gwenview for browsing and categorizing images, the HPLIP utility for easy configuration and detection of supported printers and the Gnash player, an open source SWF player to support Adobe Flash based websites.
