The release of 4MLinux 30.0, a minimalist custom distribution that is not an offshoot of other projects and uses a graphical environment based on JWM, is available. 4MLinux can be used not only as a Live environment for playing multimedia files and solving user problems, but also as a system for crash recovery and a platform for launching LAMP servers (Linux, Apache, MariaDB and PHP). The size of the iso-image is 840 MB (i686, x86_64).
In the new release, the basic distribution provides OpenGL support for games that does not require the installation of additional drivers. If necessary, an automatic shutdown of the Pulseaudio sound server is implemented (for example, for old classic games). The composition includes a FlMusic sound player, Sound Studio sound editor, fdkaac utility for using the Fraunhofer FDK AAC codec. Qt5 and GTK3 added support for WebP images.
