Pinguy OS is a Linux distribution based on Ubuntu, and the developers are only using the LTS version of the Canonical-built operating system. Since Canonical released their latest point release, Ubuntu 14.04.4, two weeks ago, it’s now time to upgrade Pinguy OS as well.
It’s interesting to see just how fast the Pinguy OS developers have moved after the launch of Ubuntu 14.04.4, especially since they have made some changes of their own. Canonical was a little bit late, and the debut of their point release was delayed, but that shouldn’t be a problem.
Pinguy OS is built by the same people who are also making Pinguy Builder, an amazing tool that can be used to build your own distro from the version that you have installed. It’s not all that well known, and the devs have been considering to drop it.
According to the changelog, HandBrake has been updated to version 0.10 to take advantage of the H.265 codec, the Linux Kernel has been updated to version 3.13.0-79, and the closed repos have been removed from the source list.
