  • New re-designed Vinux boot logo.
  • Up to date accessibility infrastructure.
  • Current Gnome-Orca and accessibility framework.
  • Improvements with Nautilus file manager when processing large folders.

Known bugs

  • Unable to include the Vinux 4.0 console speech changes due to Vinux 5.0 not using consolekit any longer
  • To use speechd-up log in to your desktop session and run sudo speechd-up from a gnome-terminal or add a startup item to do it automatically upon login.
  • There seems to be a bug in the console if you use speakup-tools to save local speakup settings. As a work around you can still gain access using sudo or root.
