Developer TheeMahn recently announced the release of Ultimate Edition 5.4, the latest stable version of its Ubuntu-based operating system designed for beginners of the Linux ecosystem.
Ultimate Edition 5.4 arrives about 3 months after the release of the previous stable version of this distribution, specifically Ultimate Edition 5.1, which was based on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) and had the Linux Kernel 4.4.
Developed with TheeMahn's own Tmosb 1.9.8 software, Ultimate Edition 5.4 is based on the newly released Ubuntu 17.04 (Zesty Zapus), so that incorporates Kernel 4.10 and updated graphics stack with Mesa 17.0.3 3D graphics library and graphics server X.Org Server 1.19.3.
"Ultimate Edition 5.4 was developed from Ubuntu 17.04 Zesty Zapus using a combination of Tmosb and handwork," stated TheeMahn in the announcement of the new version, adding that "Tmosb is also included in this version, which will allow you to do the same, since it has the capacity to build more than 3000 operating systems ”.
