EndeavourOS developer Bryan Poerwo today announced the official availability of EndeavourOS Cassini Nova, a new ISO release of the popular rolling distribution based on Arch Linux that brings updated components and bug fixes.
EndeavourOS Cassini Nova appeared less than a month after the release of EndeavourOS Cassini Neo, which upgraded the kernel package to the latest Linux 6.2 series. (The ISO image comes with Linux kernel 6.2.2)
Other updated components in the EndeavourOS Cassini Nova release include Mesa 22.3.6 graphics stack, Xorg Server 21.1.7 display server, NVIDIA 525.89.02 graphics driver, Calamares 3.3.0 Alpha 3 graphics installer, and Mozilla Firefox 110.0.1 web browser.
This release also fixes some issues reported by users since the release of EndeavourOS Cassini Neo, such as adding the nvidia_drm.modeset=1 kernel parameter when installing NVIDIA Prime, and no longer installing only the required packages when installing offline.
In addition, this release no longer includes the xf86-video-intel package for Intel legacy CPUs by default and cleans up the installer configuration file and Calamares network install list to prevent users from accidentally installing corrupted visual tools when they are not selected.
“These fixes are specific to the ISO and its installation process, and users running the system don’t have to search for “Nova updates”, they just perform regular updates since EndeavourOS is a rolling release,” said EndeavourOS developer Bryan Poerwo said.
If users wish to deploy EndeavourOS on a new computer or reinstall for some reason, it is recommended that they download EndeavourOS Cassini Nova from the official website.
