Sabayon Linux 16.11 released


Sabayon 16.11 is a modern and easy to use Linux distribution based on Gentoo, following an extreme, yet reliable, rolling release model.

This is a major release that is the result of a hard round of testing, and it is published to mirrors with the latest and greatest collection of software available in the Entropy repositories. The full changelogs for this release are available on our mirrors.

The list of packages included in each Sabayon flavor is available inside “.pkglist” files on the mirrors. Our team is always busy packaging the newest software just for you. If you want to have a look at what’s available in our repositories, just go to our packages website.

All the release variants can be found in the download section.

Please read on for links to the images and torrent files on our mirrors.

Changes
This Sabayon release is the result of team work, time and care, to provide you with a stable, solid and bleeding edge release!

There are a lot of exciting changes in this release, here’s a few:

New Anaconda Installer version, with tons of bugfixes
Latest kernel 4.8
Latest KDE-Plasma version
Renewed artwork
New Greeter!
Improvements and fixes to Entropy (the package manager)
New supported ARM devices!
We’ve added support for Odroid X2/U2/U3/C2 ARM devices, and thanks to geaaru, we added BananaPi to the list too. Daily builds can be found on our mirrors, under the “testing” folder.

Sabayon developers have decided to switch to a different release schedule:

Stable releases will be available (if there are no stoppers) at the end of January, May and October. They are still found under the “monthly/” directory in the mirrors, but from now you will find tagged stable releases under “stable/”.
Daily images can always be found under the “daily” folder and these are incremental updates (though we can’t guarantee these will always be in a working state).
