Here we are, just right before Christmas, your favourite Linux distribution got a new look! Discover it!
On the behalf of our Crew, I am proud to announce the first public release of the new Sabayon Linux Portal. A completely rewritten from scratch interface with the aim to improve the interaction between us and YOU. This is just the beginning of what we have in the oven for Christmas, like every year, we love cooking wonderful cakes (also known as "releases"). So, if you feel our efforts are worth a donation, please do it now! If you think this is not enough, come back here in January, just to say two (read: teaser), Instant Messaging, Blogging. If you feel happy, drop a line here below. If you feel more than happy, drop two. Here is a list of cool things you can try out, better if logged in (some features are hidden otherwise).

2 months of work, 10000 lines of code, and it's just the beginning. I couldn't wait to trash the old and dusted website, you may know the feeling.
Thank you NLnet Foundation, which made it possible.
I'm posting this here because some only use the forums, but if you haven't noticed, sabayonlinux.org has a brand new look in the quest to SabayonLinux 4.0. Not only does it have a new look, but it is full of great freatures, be sure to try it out. I know some are running into IRC asking where the download is for 4.0, but it hasn't been released yet. This is only a change of looks and features, not the release. The team is still working hard on preparing a 4.0 iso file.
Staus so far - still in production
- Core Team will have first round of testing than the next release after that is schedule for Public Beta testing. We do not have a set number of loops that will be tested, so final will get here when it gets here. So basically loop1 will go to Core Team, loop2 will go out for Public testing. We will have a special spot on the forum again like last time where users can give us feedback. Do keep in mind that this all can change without notice.
A big question is KDE4 - which version will we ship with? We are planning on keeping 3.5.10 with KDE4 in the repo as KDE4 just isn't complete nor stable enough. So you can still have the best of both worlds if you are a KDE fan. You can simply install KDE4 via the package manager. We wanted to go KDE4 as default, but there is just too many issues yet.
As far as the rest of the site still having the old look, have patience as it's all slowly getting converted in time.
If you can please toss a donation to Fabio for christmas, please do so. http://sabayonlinux.org/donate
