Nitrux 2.9.0 Now Includes an Upgrade Tool and More

Jul 05, 2023

The developers of the Nitrux distribution have created a new Nitrux Upgrade Tool System for easier upgrades and rollbacks.

Nitrux 2.9 has officially been released and it includes the Nitrux Update Tool System (NUTS) that makes it easier for users to either upgrade or roll back their current release. But NUTS isn't the only new addition to this user-friendly Linux distribution.

The latest iteration of Nitrux includes KDE Plasma 5.27.6 LTS, as well as KDE Framworks 5.107, KDE Gear 23.04.2, the 6.3.9 Liquorix version of the Linux kernel, a simpler means of pairing your mobile device (thanks to some new firewall rules), a new application menu entry for the Heroic Games Launcher, support for the NetworkManagaer OpenConnect VPN plugin, the latest NVIDIA Linux x64 (AMD64/EM64T) display driver (535.54.03), MESA 23.2, a new open-source driver for AMD Vulkan, Distrobox 1.5.0, MauiKit 3.0.0, OpenRC 0.47.1, new firmware for amdgpu, aut11k, brcm, cirrus, cxgb4, i915, iwlwifi, and more.

You'll also find dbab added, which is a DNSmasq-based ad-blocking utility that uses Pixelserv, as well as the Plasma Firewall, which is an easy-to-use GUI interface for UFW or Firewalld. This update also includes numerous bug fixes.
