I am pleased to announce the release of GoboLinux 015 beta3. We have had
several updates on this snapshot that include changes to the desktop
environment  (we have opted to ship the ISO with Enlightenment 18) and to
the file system hierarchy (removal of /System/Links).

Starting with this snapshot, we will no longer have support for a
configurable superuser name, too. Borrowing Hisham's words: it was an
interesting experiment, often fun, often annoying, often tiring. We
stretched the boundaries of what's hardcoded and what's not in a Linux
system, but as of 2014 it just takes too much effort to swim against the stream
on that, for little to no practical gain.

This snapshot also introduces a number of new packages that should enrich
the desktop experience. We have fixed all issues that have been reported
since beta2 and worked hard to make this release as polished and close to
final as possible.

The ISO can be downloaded from the following URL:

Please test it and give us your feedback. You can always reach us on the
mailing lists or at #gobolinux on freenode.
