Released on December 8, 2021
We are pleased to announce the release of Calculate Linux 22.
With this new version, you will be able to smoothly update your system after a long period of time. We also ported the Calculate Utilities to Python 3, and set PipeWire as the default sound server.
Calculate Linux Desktop featuring the KDE (CLD), Cinnamon (CLDC), LXQt (CLDL), Mate (CLDM) or Xfce (CLDX and CLDXS) desktop, Calculate Directory Server (CDS), Calculate Linux Scratch (CLS) and Calculate Scratch Server (CSS) are now available for download.
- Added support for long intervals between systems updates. Now you can upgrade whenever you want, even if you have not updated your system for a long time.
- The latest Calculate Utils 3.7 were fully transitioned to Python 3, and Python 2.7 removed from the distribution image.
- PulseAudio audio was replaced by PipeWire. You can also still select ALSA if this is what you prefer.
- Added Bluetooth support for ALSA.
- Enhanced support for Hyper-V hardware virtualization.
- Better system performance.
- Clementine was replaced by its fork, the Strawberry music player.
- Device management is now handled by udev instead of eudev.
