Tanglu 4.0 Has Released, Called "Dasyatis"

Matthias Klumpp has announced the release of Tanglu 4.0 which carries the code name "Dasyatis". 

Tanglu KDE is an open source Linux operating system combines the stable base of Debian GNU/Linux with the complexity of the KDE Plasma Workspaces and Applications desktop environment.

Includes top notch and up-to-date applications

Including top notch and up-to-date applications, the Tanglu Linux operating system is a fast distro that tries to offer one of the best desktop experiences for both enthusiasts and regular users. Just like Ubuntu, Tanglu is designed by human beings, for human beings.

Supports 64-bit and 32-bit architectures

This edition is distributed as two Live DVD ISO-hybrid images that support both 64-bit and 32-bit (PAE) architectures and can be deployed on USB flash drives. The boot menu is identical with the one used on the GNOME flavor of Tanglu Linux

Tanglu 4 comes - due to being frozen for far too long - without the latest and greatest packages, but still with some notable changes. The KDE Plasma version is at 5.8, while the GNOME desktop is available in version 3.20 with some pieces from GNOME 3.22. The KDE Plasma design was updated with some suggestions from KDE designers at Akademy last year. Tanglu is a fully usrmerged system by default now, with no option to switch back to split-/usr or opt-in option (like in previous releases). Additionally, we support installing on UEFI systems without legacy mode now, which was a much requested feature and took quite a while to make it work reliably with the Calamares installer. We do not, however, support secure boot on EFI systems yet.

Here is the full release announcement as published on the project's News page.
