While we are nearing now the first states for HyperbolaBSD compiling the kernel and first work will go into the userland, we like to inform that HyperbolaBSD is a complete operating-system and not a distribution / system-distribution. We will remove at an upcoming point many more packages from extra-repository, leaving only most important applications, window-managers and more. Others being added will be left out, removed and saved within an own ports-tree for the future, such as many BSD descendant projects, for example OpenBSD, NetBSD and FreeBSD.
That maybe not the vision many have or had, but it is the point given for a further difference: HyperbolaBSD is a free and libre system, but not distributing more and more packages. So please keep an eye at the repositories to come, especially when it comes towards version 0.4.4 as we will do those steps starting there.
For more details look also at the roadmap.
Now we won't implement more packages besides the planned for release 0.4.3. If you like, please prepare a port on your own sharing for the community. It can be later part for the ports-tree. Please always remember: HyperbolaBSD will be a new BSD descendant system project, not a system-distribution any longer.
Hyperbola is now official 6 years working as a free and libre system-distribution and project. We are happy with all the good progress made and besides that Hyperbola is also here to stay: On
15th April of 2017 the project and the idea behind was created. And on
13th July of 2017 the official v0.1 of our Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre was released. But it was not stopped there: On
15th October 2017 v0.2 found its way to be released. And after further work on
9th September 2019 our release v0.3 was final. With our release v0.4 ...
We are happy to announce that we have received a laptop from our team-member and founder Gaming4JC. The ThinkPad X230 will be used for the further development of HyperbolaBSD.
We hereby announce a new revision of Hyperbola live image for Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre. With this new version we have completed the support for runit as system for services and initialization. Furthermore we have fixed, updated and added many packages.
Download information can be found here.
With the release of
Milky Way v0.4 we have completely removed the support for bluetooth within Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre and also don't plan to include it in HyperbolaBSD in the future. The reasoning is pure focussed on security-issues bluetooth has.
