gNewSense 2.3 is out!
Version 2.3 of gNewSense, one of the FSF-endorsed free GNU/Linux distributions, was released last month. Anyone interested in keeping pace with the latest improvements in free operating systems should check it out. It's based on Ubuntu, but without the non-free parts that Ubuntu includes by default, or suggests that you download.
If you were already using gNewSense 2.x, you can update to 2.3 with a standard system update.
As with other 2.x releases, this gNewSense release is available as a live cd for x86 (i386) systems, using GNOME as the default desktop environment (others such as XFCE or KDE are available post installation).
For a more complete list of updates, read the full release announcement.
