Almost ready for release!

So, hopefully by tonight (or later this afternoon, depending on how nicely TalkTalk are to us!) we will have uploaded Simplicity Linux Obsidian and Desktop 13.7.  You may be wondering why there is no Netbook or Media editions.  Well, we have had issues with XBMC on LXPup which Simplicity is based on.  We’re working on that for 13.10 and we plan to have a 13.10 Media Alpha out in August.  As for Netbook, we’re resting it for at least one release cycle.  Because we think that Obsidian and Netbook are too similar.  If there is demand for it, we’ll bring it back, but at the moment we don’t think they’re different enough to warrant two releases.

Simplicity Linux 13.4 is the release that got us noticed by the wider world.  Simplicity 13.7 hopefully builds on that with the back to basics UI.  And we are planning on implementing a lot of cool stuff in Simplicity 13.10.  But of course, that is a whole 3 months away!
