CrunchBang 10 “Statler” Alpha 2

The second alpha release of CrunchBang 10 is now available. The new alpha 2 builds were created on Thursday 24th June 2010 and are in sync with the Debian Squeeze repositories as of that date. Debian Squeeze continues to develop nicely and the Debian developers are doing a fantastic job. Major updates to Squeeze and therefore CrunchBang, since the last CrunchBang alpha builds, include updates to both the Openbox Window Manager ( and the Xfce Desktop Environment (4.6.2).

Thanks go out to everybody who tested the first alpha builds; the extensive feedback and suggestions were invaluable and as a result, the new alpha builds contain many updates and fixes. For a brief overview of what has changed, please see the release notes on the wiki.

As always with CrunchBang, this release is not recommended for anyone who requires a stable system. Anyone who uses CrunchBang should be comfortable with occasional or even frequent breakage. Remember, CrunchBang Linux could make your computer go CRUNCH! BANG! :)

If you do decide to give CrunchBang a try, please come and join in the statler conversion on the forums. We would love to read your feedback and suggestions for improvements!
