I am pleased to announce the release of Dragora 3.0 Beta 1.

Dragora is a complete and reliable distribution of the GNU/Linux
system that is entirely free software.  Dragora is founded on the
of simplicity and elegance, it can be run for almost any purpose
workstation, server, development, etc.). The intended audience is people
interested in learning more about the technical aspects of a friendly
GNU/Linux distribution.  Also people looking to use the purest ethical
software for daily use.

The beginning of the development of the series 3.0 represents the
migration towards a new C library, Musl.  The continuation of
supervision capabilities (introduced for the services in 2012).
The restructuring of the hierarchy of directories, the improvement of
the tools provided by the distribution, a new automatic method to build
the distribution, the prebuilt cross-compiler set, and much more!

The homepage is at www.dragora.org

Current development pages are located at
https://git.savannah.nongnu.org/cgit/dragora.git/ and

Changes in this version:

   * A new installer for this series has been introduced, it can be
     invoked from the command line as `dragora-installer'.

   * A new tool (based on dialog(1)) has been introduced to
     configure the keyboard mapping in the console, it is called

   * Our simple and friendly package manager has reached version 1.3,
     which contains minor changes and fixes.  It is worth mentioning
     that Qi now uses `tarlz' to produce, list packages in parallel.
     Tarlz uses a simplified and safer variant of the POSIX pax format
     compressed with our favorite compressor "lzip".

   * To complement the security in general, for binaries with PIE and
     SSP (both are default features in Dragora), they are now
     with RELRO by default.

   * The main toolchain has been upgraded.  This -beta1 have Binutils
     2.33.1, The GNU C Compiler 9, GNU Linux libre 4.19.78, and
     Musl 1.1.24.

   * LibreSSL has been upgraded to the version 3.0.1

   * Ruby (programming language) version 2.6.5 has been introduced.

   * Support for FUSE (in the kernel) and user space, is now available
     in Dragora.

   * Xfce 4.14 has been introduced in this version.

   * dragora-ice, a customized version of IceWM has been added.

   * All the official X.Org components has been updated (drivers, server,
     applications, etc.).  Included new drivers: xf86-input-elographics,
     xf86-video-amdgpu, xf86-video-vboxvideo.  The configuration for the
     xf86-video-intel driver has been fixed this time.

   * Work to complete DocBook support in Dragora is underway.

   * Build recipes for new packages have been built:

     Please, traverse the /usr/pkg hierarchy for a full view of
     installed packages.

   * Many general fixes, improvements, and clean ups have been performed.

The ISO images may be fetched at:


See http://dragora.org/en/mirrors.html for a list of available mirrors.

The sha256sums are:


Dragora is available in "live" or hybrid ISO image form.  You need the
for the packages if you want to perform a hard disk installation.


* The password for the root user in the Live CD is: dragora

This beta version can be considered as stable, it is catalogued just as
beta because it lacks many things that we will try to complement in

We welcome feedback at our Freenode IRC channel, #dragora, and on our
mailing list.  We are looking for help with documentation, testing,
bug reports, patches, etc.

Thank you to all of you who support this humble project made with great
sacrifice.  And thank you especially for supporting the philosophy and
spirit of software freedom that Dragora aims to promote.

Best regards,
Matias Fonzo, Dragora author and maintainer.
