Netrunner 4.2 Dryland – Second Edition Released

The new version of Netrunner is out. Dryland Second Edition has quite some new features, and comes with the following software: KDE 4.8.3, Gimp 2.8, Firefox 12, the just released Skype 4.0, Wine 1.5.3, Virtualbox 4.1.10, VLC 2.0.1, LibreOffice 3.5.2,  among many others.

However, perhaps, the biggest news is Netrunner’s integration of web- and especially cloud-services. From Facebook and GMail to owncloud and Runners-ID, we’ll be checking everything about how to setting them up and squeeze them in the next days, screencasts included.

You’ll get a mix of the latest Kubuntu 12.04 LTS and some new cloud integration technologies. Because Neturnner is distributed as hybrid ISO images you can either burn it as a DVD or use a tool like ImageWriter or UNetbootin to install it on an USB stick. Just pick the 32 or 64-bit version from the website and you’re ready to go.
