Tiny Core's Future
« on: July 26, 2014, 05:58:07 PM »
I'm generally happy with Tiny Core Linux as it is, but are there any plans for a version 6 (or even 5.4)? Or are the various dCores going to be the main emphasis?

There are a couple of fixes queued in git for 5.4 and we're working towards tc-6.x

Thanks, Juanito.

I like standard TC (it's the only distro I use at home, besides fooling around with dCore and occasionally stealing time on my wife's Windows PC) but I've been wondering what its future is. A number of the original developers seem to have departed and the conversion to 5.x has been much slower than previous conversions. Glad to hear there are on-going plans.

Juanito

How can we follow the plans for future versions of Core?

Can we give suggestions and contribute with something?

Nice!

Can we see somewhere the goals discussed for future releases?

It's all still in flux, but so far looking like beyond the usual kernel upgrade it will have FLTK 1.3 for easier utf-8.

Any plans on having alternative GTK and/or Qt base apps? (to be installed later from the repos)

What do you mean, alternative to what?

Why? I don't see any gain from redoing any of the apps in another toolkit. Only more work for the ability to use some theme.

Yes, and consider the size of a Gtk+/Qt infrastucture.

Alternative to the default X apps made with FLTK. And by alternative I mean a version of the the same FLTK apps to be avaiable in the repos made with GTK/QT for better integration for those who use graphical interfaces.

Gtk, Qt, efl are not part of the base, just extensions. You are welcome to provide tools up top your taste :)
