Weekly Status Report: 2019-05-19

Hello all!

There is much to discuss about the impending release of Adélie Linux 1.0-BETA3. As this is being written, the area where many of us live and work is under the threat for a multi-day tornado outbreak. This may cause some additional delays in the release process, but rest assured — 1.0-BETA3 will be the best release of Adélie Linux yet, and worth a little wait!

General discussion / image

Our PowerPC bootable images have been tested on many different hardware and firmware combinations, and now successfully boot on IBM pSeries systems and on QEMU/KVM. They have also been verified to boot via USB on iBook G3, PowerBook G4, Power Mac G5, and Talos II.

Our x86 images now have tested working EFI support, including Apple EFI and Intel UEFI.

The ARM64 root filesystem tarballs (rootfs) now have their respective kernel DTB files.

iw and dosfstools have been added to all Adélie Linux images. OpenRC has been removed from the mini-rootfs.
