IRC, Matrix and XMPP are now bridged together on Calculate Linux

Use any of IRC, Matrix or XMPP client application to join the Calculate community and start chatting.

There is no point in describing the features of each protocol here, since you do not need to change anything if you are already using them. Just come to our chat room. If you do not use any of the clients that support these protocols, try Matrix.

Choosing a communication platform is both an important and difficult task. IRC would seem to be ideal for this purpose as it provides good functionality, ensures reliable spam protection and does not require a registration. All Live Calculate CDs/DVDs still do come with a pre-configured IRC client, but the number of IRC users has been declining significantly as social networks became widely used.

We have a bunch of news for this last 2018 release. We have added support for installation on Btrfs with the zstd compression. All server editions have been optimized for size. Software can now be transferred when reinstalling the system. Our ISO images are packed in the zstd format to speed up the startup times for the LiveCD, applications and system installation.


Transferring applications when reinstalling the system

Calculate Linux can be updated in two ways: either from an ISO image or in a per package mode. Both methods have their pros and cons. The software is actually updated in a matter of minutes when from an ISO, but the preinstalled software is not transferred once the update procedure has been completed.

We've got news!

We decided to compress our LiveCD Calculate Linux in the zstd format intead of the actually used xz. Zstd archives are larger, but the system boots ways faster with it. The system installs in no time and applications start in a flash. If you are building a customized version of Calculate, repacking of the modified packages will run faster too. The zstd archiver is also less RAM-consuming. Our new record, an updated CLDX installed in 1 min 21 sec on a NVMe PC with the i3 processor, while it took 4 min before. It booted then in 28 sec, against 35 sec earlier on the same computer.
