Bluefin 2.7.0

We cut a new release today and spun new ISOs. Here’s all the changes. If you’re on a Framework laptop this includes all the hardware enablement out of the box.

It’s kind of impossible to keep things a secret in OSS so no announcement on the Framework support yet, in the meantime enjoy it and please keep filing issues as you find them, thanks!

Hey Jorge, thanks for the update :grinning:

On this build, I faced the following:

Plus, on startup/login screen, password field froze a bit - restart resolved the issue.

Should I be worried and do clean reinstall for the two minor issues above?

The first one looks like a network hiccup, I wouldn’t worry about it. Not sure about the login freezing like that, is it intermittent or permanent?

I wouldn’t recommend a reinstall, it’s probably easier to find out what’s happening.

On the first attempt, I entered password wrongly and on the following attempt, the laptop keyboard or password input field froze.
Restarting laptop resolved the issue. Everything is fine now so far :grinning:
Very happy with this update, featuring GNOME 45.6 and ublue icon too in the top left corner!
