Software versions and distro editions

This release is based on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and as always it contains only free software, including:

The distro has several editions:

This version features a brand new look. Exaile has replaced Rhythmbox as the default music management application. For photo management, Shotwell has been added. Video editing is made easy with the addition of PiTiVi. The Empathy messenger client has replaced Pidgin. Finally, for using scanners, the GTK-based Simple-Scan has replaced the old X11-based XSane.

In this version, only English and Spanish languages are installed by default, to conserve disk space. All other languages can still be installed after booting into the desktop.

All of the editions support 32 and 64-bit architectures.
