Icaros Desktop 2.1 available for download
« on: March 13, 2016, 11:13:18 PM »
The latest version of AROS distribution Icaros Desktop has been released. V2.1 consolidates the 2.0.x codebase with many bugfixes and additions, above all a new version of OWB supporting HTML5 videos (YouTube.com and others). This release also includes handlers for NTFS-3G and exFAT partitions, and can now access (in read-only mode) your Google Drive account, simplifying its configuration with a dedicated Prefs tool (coded in LUA by Icaros team).
For more screenshot and info: icarosdesktop.org

Cool!

Is it possible to dd the ISO to a USB stick for installation yet or do we still have to burn it to a disc?

You have to create a custom "installation USB media", following the instruction in the manual and on Icaros website. More instructions here:
