Calamares 1.1-RC2 is out

Hot on the heels of the first release candidate for the upcoming Calamares 1.1 release, the Calamares team hereby announces the immediate availability of Calamares 1.1-RC2.

This is a pre-release product for testers and early adopters. It brings countless improvements over 1.0 and fixes for issues that have been discovered since 1.1-RC1.

Testing is of utmost importance to ensure the quality of the final 1.1 release in a few weeks, so play with it, try to break it, and tell us all about it on the Calamares issue tracker.

  • Fixed issue with Boost.Python built against Python 3 not being found on Debian derivatives in some cases
  • Fixed issue which caused Calamares to crash on systems with LVM
  • Added support for not setting the root password in the Users module
  • Fixed build with GCC 4.8.4
