Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre is a
modified version of the GNU operating system along with the Linux-libre kernel distributed by Hyperbola Project. We are now listed by the Free Software Foundation as
meeting their guidelines for a fully free software OS.
From the official FSF announcement:
"In a world where proprietary operating systems continually up the ante in terms of the abuse they heap on their users, adding another distribution to the list of fully free systems is a welcome development. Hyperbola represents another safe home for users looking for complete control over their own computing," said John Sullivan,
FSF's executive director.
"Hyperbola is a fully free distribution based on Arch snapshots and Debian development without nonfree software, documentation, or any type of support for the installation or execution of nonfree software. Unlike Arch, which is a rolling release distribution, Hyperbola is a long-term one focused on stability and security inspired from Debian and Devuan," said André Silva,
Hyperbola co-founder and developer.
FSF's licensing and compliance manager, Donald Robertson, added, "It was a pleasure working with the team behind Hyperbola throughout this process. They really go above and beyond in terms of looking out for the rights of their users."
We want to thank our members fellows, support staff, security team, artists, developers, founders and YOU for
having contributed in Hyperbola and
making this possible.

left-over hacks are no longer needed.
several weeks of work and testing, we hearby announce the first stable release of Iceape-UXP, a
classic suite based on SeaMonkey. While our primary focus remains Icedove-UXP, and Iceweasel-UXP, users that have requested a stable suite may now enjoy using it.
Several long-standing SeaMonkey bugs have been patched in this release including some security and crash fixes.
We would also like to thank the Unified XUL Platform development team for their diligent development of the Goanna engine, which makes Iceape-UXP possible.
Some of the
new application features:

better use existing donations, Hyperbola founders
decided to switch from Gandi to UltraVPS

more stability moving forward. This comes to 100 EUR yearly for 2 VPS machines.
