The release of the meta-distribution T2 sDE 24.6 has been published, providing an environment for creating customized distributions, cross-compilation, and maintaining package versions. Distributions can be built based on various systems including Linux, Minix, Mingw, MacOS, Haiku, and BSD. Popular distributions such as Puppy Linux are built on the T2 system. Basic booting ISOs with minimal graphic environments and options with MUSL, UCLIBC, and Glibc libraries are provided for the project, with over 5,000 packages available for assembly.

T2 supports 25 hardware architectures including Alpha, ARM, HPPA, MIPS, PowerPC, S390X, SPARC, x86, and more. The platform accommodates both modern built-in systems and older hardware like the Sony PS3 and SGI, Sun, and HP workstations. Some architectures can operate with just 512 MB of RAM. Assemblies with graphic environments based on Gnome and Wayland are available for x86_64, i686, ARM64, PPC64, IA-64, and RISCV-64 architectures.

Key changes in the new version of T2 include the addition of 80 packages, updates to 750 packages, and the removal of 21 packages. The base setup includes Libreoffice, Wine, and Thunderbird, along with Linux 6.9, LVM/Clang 18.1.6, GCC 13.3.0, Mesa 24.1, Firefox 126, KDE 6, and GNOME 46. Utilities for manipulating SPIR-V shader intermediate representation used in Vulkan have been included. Openssl performance has been optimized, doubling the operation of many cryptoalgorithms and SSH on IA-64 systems.

  • Support for installation in remaining free disk space has been added.
  • Minimum installation mode without X.org components is now available.
  • Built-in network configuration for wireless network connections using WPA has been implemented.
  • The number of default icons and desktop wallpapers has been expanded, with added support for SVG format.
