Moblin 2.1 Officially Released With Improvements

In September during the Intel Developer Forum we learned that Moblin 2.1 would be coming in Q4'09 (just one quarter after the 2.0 release) and would present the Moblin Application Installer, Moblin Garage, and other improvements. Sure enough, Moblin 2.1 has arrived now and it's only the middle of the fourth quarter.

Last month we provided a Moblin 2.1 preview, but to reiterate some of the key features there is the Moblin Garage (effectively an "app store" for this mobile-oriented distribution), Clutter 1.0 integration, Bluetooth device support, improved connection management, localization support, and even a much-improved web-browser.

While Moblin has traditionally been focused for Atom-powered netbooks, Moblin 2.1 will also work with "nettops", or the less-portable, mini-desktop systems running with an Intel Atom processor and similar specifications to the netbooks. Running "under the hood" is the Linux 2.6.31 kernel, xf86-video-intel 2.9, Mesa 7.6, and X Server 1.6.4.

The Moblin 2.1 official release was just announced at Moblin.org, where it can also be downloaded.
