17.04 Released!

e are pleased to announce the release of the next version of our distro – and the first as an official flavor of the Ubuntu family.

Based on 16.04 and 16.10 budgie-remix experiences, feedback and suggestions we have received from our users, the new release comes with a lot of new featuresfixes and optimizations:

  • Focused heavily on stability
  • More customisation options via budgie welcome
    • Complete desktop look and feel change – Material Designs of Adapta or Vimix
    • Startup wizard on first logon taking new users through the first logon procedures
    • Browser ballot – we believe you should decide what your favorite browser should be
    • Overhaul of our delivered application set – the best from the GNOME family as well as the fantastic Terminix terminal emulator
  • Latest upstream Budgie desktop v10.2.9

You can and should read more about what we have been upto via our release notes .

Download links  and installation guide are provided. As always – do check the md5sum hash value of the downloaded ISO – this really does help you get on with a flying start for your install.

Thank you all for your continued support!
