Grafpup 2.00 final was released yesterday around the world and it brings bleeding edge features such as:
  • Linux kernel
  • A revamped package management with dependency resolution
  • The Gimp 2.3.14
  • Cinepaint 0.22 with the cvs Ufraw plug-in
  • A brand new control panel
  • cdrkit replaces cdrtools
  • Openbox replaces IceWM
I think the most exciting feature in this release, is the Openbox WM, which is a standards compliant, fast, light-weight, extensible window manager. Openbox works with your applications, and makes your desktop easier to manage. It is fully functional as a stand-alone working environment, or can be used as a drop-in replacement for the default window manager in the GNOME or KDE desktop environments.

The Grafpup team setup a very nice repository, with more than 1100 applications, from which you can install very easily other desktop environments like XFCE4 or KDE. This version of Grafpup comes in three editions: with Opera, with SeaMonkey and with Dillo web browsers.

Grafpup Linux is a desktop operating system which provides a complete and stable workflow for digital imaging professionals and graphic artists in a very compact package.

Grafpup Linux runs very well as a Live CD, but with persistent storage for your data, and a nice package management system to add on the software. When running the Live CD, you can also install extra packages that will remain after reboot.

Of course, Grafpup Linux can also be installed quite easily onto a USB thumbdrive or your hard disk, and it will run equally well. Grafpup Linux is based on the structure of Puppy Linux, which is an amazing distribution created from scratch by Barry Kauler. The total size of the Grafpup Linux Live CD is around 100 MB, and the whole operating system loads into RAM for amazing performance.
