Some projects and applications make usage of a different approach for licensing and have even additional serious flaws included. Therefore it is very hard or even impossible to include them within a full freedom-oriented system like Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre and HyperbolaBSD. Therefore to note that we cannot support those, naming Rust for its problematic trademarks and Chromium being nonfree in many aspects.
With the release
Milky Way v0.4 all parts of D-Bus got completely removed and all included packages within our repositories were selected to be completely usable without any message-oriented middleware and framework. We don't plan to integrate any further support for the framework also in the future for upcoming versions of Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre and HyperbolaBSD.
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.
