First Maintenance Release For Vine Linux 5
Vine Linux is a free Linux-based operating system, for the Japanese community. It is designed for both workstations and server machines. The new version of Vine Linux brings only security updates and bug fixes that were announced since the release of Vine Linux 5.0. Therefore, it should be considered a maintenance version, with no new features!
“Vine Linux 5, unlike the commercial version (Vine Linux CR), does not come with any ‘supports’ – if you face any troubles and problems with Vine Linux, or if you have any questions, a mailing list for Vine Linux users (vine-users ML) would be appropriate. In case you need a ‘support’ for the Vine Linux, you may buy a commercial support service individually.” – was written in the official release notes for Vine Linux 5.
