This is the first Vinux release featuring the Unity-2d Desktop which improves on transition to Vinux and introduces newer and increasingly stable accessibility features. We now recommend that when possible users perform updates on a regular basis. This will enable the Vinux team to update packages, and introduce new features.
unity-2d 5.14 LibreOffice 3.5.7 <DVD only> Speech-dispatcher 0.8 Gnome-orca 3.4.2 Espeak 1.47 Firefox 21.0 Thunderbird 17.0 Cry for help, remote assistance by Vinux gurus. Just to mention a few.
The indicator panel is not accessible from Firefox and Thunderbird. Console speech has been completed, but it probably needs some stability improvement.
Vinux 4.0 is now available in the AMD64 and i386 architectures and available in both CD and DVD versions.
DVD: This contains everything necessary to install the Vinux operating system and a collection of pre-defined packages aimed at visually impaired users. This should be all you need if you can burn and use DVD-sized media.
CD: This also contains everything necessary to install the Vinux operating system and a collection of pre-defined packages aimed at visually impaired users. Use this image if you can only burn and use CD-sized media.
Vinux 4.0 can be installed from optical media or from a USB memory stick. The required files can be downloaded via HTTP as described below.
The Vinux development team currently plans on supporting 4.0 until June 2015. Our mailing list has a supportive community on Google groups at http://groups.google.com/group/vinux-support or you can subscribe by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
