ClearFoundation is excited for the latest release of new upstream sources. We are grateful to hardware providers that enable us to rebuild these sources quickly. Since we are already building sources for our expected release of 6.0 we have merged the newly released sources and have already begun rebuilding our 6.0 tree against upstream 6.1 sources. At the time of this writing, we are already nearly complete in our build from sources. This has turned out to be great timing for us as we will soon be able to place these packages into beta for the community for testing.

We are excited to announce that in conjunction to the release of ClearOS Enterprise 6.0 that we will also be releasing a new distribution, ClearOS Core 6.1. This new distribution strives to maintain 100% package compatibility with upstream sources.  100% compatibility means

ClearOS Core will also contain all upstream issues and bugs.  The only changes from upstream sources will be to remove branding as required.

Beginning tomorrow, we will begin our internal QA process to validate the symbols. ClearOS Core 6.1 will be based on these 6.1 upstream sources. ClearOS Enterprise 6.0 will enter beta using the sources we have previously built against upstream 6.0 sources. During the beta we will 'update' to these new sources and hope to have them merged by the completion of the beta cycle. We expect to release code into beta shortly for both products.

ClearOS Core and ClearOS Enterprise are free and open source platforms. ClearCenter continues to provide paid resources such as support, hardware, and services for ClearOS. Volunteer today!
