Fuduntu Announces End of Life

Postby Adelante on Mon Apr 15, 2013 3:46 pm

Too bad. It was nice while it lasted.

Fuduntu Team meeting held on April 14, 2013

Beginning today, no new features will be implemented. The only exception are those features which are already being worked on. We will continue to provide bug and security fixes until the last day of support, however. 2013.3 will be the last release and September 30 will be the last official day of Fuduntu Linux.

Following that decision, however, most of the team members then discussed the idea of creating a “new” Fuduntu. Andrew Wyatt, however will not be a part of the new distro in an official capacity. After the decision to EOL, Andrew, the founder and lead developer of Fuduntu, announced his plans to retire after the final Fuduntu release. Andrew will be missed and his hard work and dedication is appreciated by all. While he will not be serving in an official capacity, Andrew will be serving as an advisor to the leadership and team of the new distro.

Andrew Wyatt (fewt) posted on Google+ yesterday.

Responding to a question about what base the new project will use:

Andrew WyattYesterday 8:59 AM

+Alessandro Ebersol the team is leaning towards SuSE.


Posting at the same time:

Blair ZimmermanYesterday 8:59 AM

+Alessandro Ebersol, we are still deciding on a lot of specifications.... new base included. Rest assured we will choose a base to give us the same stability that we have always sought and that will be as beneficial to the project as is available.
