systemd doesn't follow our Social Contract, we have decided to remove it since
Milky Way v0.2. Using a snapshot taken we had remnants of
systemd and correspdoning files in packages. With
Milky Way v0.4 and beyond all parts of systemd got finally removed as the system was built from the ground up without any further snapshot.
We have removed
OpenJDK partwise in the last phases of
Milky Way v0.3. Nevertheless
Milky Way v0.4 does not include furthermore any package based onto
OpenJDK and we won't support it also in the future for upcoming versions of Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre and HyperbolaBSD. The reasoning is therefore: Java has its complete downfalls based onto security-problems, trademark-issues and poor quality of packaging.
We hereby announce a new release of Hyperbola live image for Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre. It is the first release with nondependence on D-Bus and many of the commonly used frameworks dropped.
This version contains various bugfixes and notable performance.

After a long and continuous period of tests and development, we are happy to announce a new release of Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre. With version 0.4, we have reached yet another major milestone: With it Hyperbola will be able to start the groundworks, per say of HyperbolaBSD. This release will serve as a transitional platform, for the continued effort to create a copyleft BSD based alternative kernel and system. For more information on this check.
Many of the commonly used frameworks that we identified as definitely not being wanted were dropped, and alternatives where packaged and included. Lumina is one ...
We are currently cleaning our server from all old and outdated packages as our next major release Milky Way v0.4 has been in testing for a long period and so will become the stable branch. Expected release date is March 1st.
This version of Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre most likely needs a complete reinstall as the changes are so drastic, especifically what regards to D-Bus. Please note: It is no longer recommended to migrate from any other Arch-based distro.
After this time v0.4 will become the new stable.
