We are extremely pleased to announce the first rc (release candidate) of Hyperbola v0.4 . It is a small pit stop while migrating from Linux to hyperbk kernel, a fork of OpenBSD’s bsd kernel with non-free parts replaced.

v0.4 has linux-libre without systemd, ConsoleKit, PolicyKit, D-Bus, elogind.

For now, it is for advanced testers only. The beauty of Hyperbola lies in purity of components, minimalism and constant quest towards perfection. We welcome advanced GNU/Linux users to try it out!
