ArchBang Gets Banged Up For The Holidays
ArchBang 2012.12 was released this weekend as the latest version of the Arch Linux derivative distribution that is very lightweight and ships with the OpenBox window manager.
ArchBang 2012.12 is the project's first release where there is a full systemd version following upstream Arch Linux moving with systemd back in October. Aside from the 2012.12 release using systemd, the packages have also been updated for the minimal packages shipping with the Linux OS. OpenBox continues to be the window manager on the front-end for providing a clean lightweight experience.
ArchBang 2012.12 is shipping with the Linux 3.6.8 kernel, a new dark theme, an updated openbox-menu, and dbus-launch has been removed from the platform. Going forward, the project is still planning to push out updates to this distribution four times per year while releasing test images prior to official ISOs.
