[Image: 2naid6t.jpg]

The Foresight Linux Project team announced, on May 15th, the immediate availability of a new version of their Linux distribution. Foresight Linux 2.1.1, coming three months after the 2.1.0 release, brings notable changes, including the latest GNOME desktop environment and a new Linux kernel.

"It is with great pleasure that I announce the release of Foresight 2.1.1. Well known for being a desktop operating system featuring an intuitive user interface and a showcase of the latest desktop software, this new release brings you the latest GNOME 2.26.1 release, a newer Linux kernel 2.6.29, a revamped notification area, and a ton of Xorg improvements!" said Og Maciel in the official release announcement.

The GNOME 2.26.1 desktop environment brings improvements in areas like file sharing, multi-monitor setups and support for fingerprint-reading devices. Foresight Linux 2.1.1 also features redesigned notifications, providing better ways of interacting with various system messages. Pidgin, Gwibber and Banshee are only some of the applications that will take advantage of this notification framework (called notify-osd). The Linux kernel used in this release is version 2.6.29; thus, Foresight 2.1.1 now supports WiMAX and includes new wireless drivers, like the Ralink rt2860/70 one.
