A new version of the minimalist Slax Linux distribution has been released today, bringing all the security fixes and updates from the stable Debian GNU/Linux repositories.

Slax 9.8 is now available for download and comes about three weeks after the release of Slax 9.7, which improved compatibility with new USB devices and made the ISO image even smaller by using 1MB blocks to compress the SquashFS filesystem. 

Slax 9.8 is based on the recently released Debian GNU/Linux 9.8operating system and incorporates all of the upstream security updates and miscellaneous bug fixes that were included in the DebianGNU/Linux 9.8 "Stretch" point release.

"Slax project is pleased to announce the eighth update of its stable distribution, based on Debian stretch. This point release only updates some of the packages included, no new features were added," said Tomas Matejicek in today's announcement.No new features are includedUnfortunately, the Slax 9.8 release doesn't include any new features and improvements besides the security updates borrowed from Debian GNU/Linux 9.8. It's here only to offer users an up-to-date installation media if you want to deploy the distro on new PCs.

The next Slax releases should include more new features and improvements for fans of this minimalist GNU/Linux distribution, including better UEFI boot support, EFI support in VirtualBox, support for excluding certain core modules, as well as a bunch of new packages and various bug fixes.

Until then, you can download Slax 9.8 right now via our free portal or buy a USB flash drive or DVD disc with Slax Linux pre-installed from the official website to support the developer. Existing users can update their installations by running the "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get full-upgrade" command in a terminal emulator.
