There's three important announcements coming out of Intel's Developer Forum today as it relates to their Moblin Linux distribution that launched two years ago: Moblin 2.0 final has been released, Moblin 2.1 is under development, and Moblin Garage and the Moblin Application Installer have been introduced.

Moblin 2.0 came about earlier this year and in particular we love it for its very fast boot times and very impressive user-interface that is driven by the Clutter Tool-kit. Moblin 2.0 has been gaining lots of steam the past few months and many distributions (including Ubuntu with the Ubuntu Moblin Remix) have created their own spins of this Intel-conceived operating system. As of today, Moblin 2.0 is now officially released and will soon begin appearing on netbooks offered by different vendors.

Intel has also announced the launch of the Moblin Garage and the Moblin Application Installer. The Moblin Garage is an online application portal for finding Moblin applications that are either open-source or closed-source but come at no cost. The Moblin Application Installer is a client application for managing the installation of new applications. Both the Moblin Garage and Application Installer are undergoing active development.

Lastly, Intel has laid out some of their plans for Moblin 2.1. Moblin 2.1 will be an incremental update but will introduce support for MIDs, mobile phones, embedded devices, and in-vehicle systems. Some other features for Moblin 2.1 include the aforementioned Moblin Garage and Moblin Application Installer, an updated Linux kernel, better language support, and various other improvements. Moblin 2.1 is planned for release in the fourth quarter of this year, but a test release is already available as of today.

Details on these three major Intel Moblin announcements can be found on this Moblin.org page.
