Linux Lite 3.2 comes with major security enhancements

Linux Lite 3.2It was expected for yesterday, November 1, but it arrived a day before, on All Saints' Day or Halloween, which is why we have not been able to talk about its launch until today. And it is that last October 31, Jerry Bezencon was in charge of announcing the official launch of Linux Lite 3.2, a distribution based on Ubuntu that comes with important security improvements.

To be more exact, Linux Lite 3.2 is based on Ubuntu 16.04.1, the first major update of the latest LTS version of the operating system developed by Canonical. This means that you have the Linux 4.4 kernel, that the update has focused on security, and that the latest kernel security patches will be installed as soon as they are available via the software update tool.

Linux Lite 3.2 is based on Ubuntu 16.04.1

Perhaps more interesting than the latest security updates is an option called Lite Desktop Widget, which promises to offer users basic information about the distribution installed from the desktop. On the other hand, GRUB support has been included to start Linux Lite along with other distributions and now Lite Welcome allows us to update on the fly.

Linux Lite 3.2 comes with a good number of updated applications and components, such as Mozilla Firefox 49.0.2 web browser, Mozilla Thunderbird 45.4.0 mail client, LibreOffice 5.1.4.2, VLC Media Player 2.2.2, GIMP 2.8.18 or the latest version of the Whisker Menu applications menu. New wallpapers have also been added by various community members, support for installing .deb packages from the default Gdebi installer, an updated sources.list file, improvements in Lite User Manager, better contrast for icons of tray, improved the boot image and updated the Terminal topic and the help manual.

    Yes, it is indeed a marvel of the distro, but, unfortunately, I was not able to configure it completely in Spanish, although my keyboard offered Latin Spanish to me, when entering the key of my wifi some digits appeared that I do not have on my keyboard, as I point out, It is very beautiful, attractive, but it was not possible for me to connect my Wi-Fi and the keyboard I think was Korean or Russian, I repeat, although initially it offers the Latin American keyboard system, it finally configures a very different one.
