 【New Features and Optimizations】

  • Added "Backup Update" toggle feature: Access the Control Center - Update Settings - Other Settings, and turn off the toggle to perform system updates without backing up the system (use with caution).
  • Newly integrated system fonts include WenQuanYi Micro Hei, WenQuanYi Zheng Hei, and WenQuanYi dot-matrix Song.
  • Updated the closed-source nvidia-graphics-drivers package.
  • Optimized to enhance video decoding compatibility, supporting decoding of multiple video streams and playback of videos in various resolutions.
  • Optimized to reduce the number of snapshots to prevent the /boot/ partition from being filled up by kernel snapshots due to backups.
  • Optimized the installer trial mode to support selection of system language and keyboard layout before entering the system (currently, "Time Zone" must be selected after entering the system).
  • Optimized the display style of the encrypted network lock icon on the lock screen interface, which was too small; it has been modified to be consistent with the interface when the system is not locked.
