    Dyne:bolic GNU/Linux is a live bootable cd, containing a whole
    operating system working straight from boot, without the need to
    install or change anything on the hard disk. You can try it out very
    easily and if you like it you can simply copy a directory on your
    harddisk and run it locally.

    Dyne:bolic is user-friendly, recognizes your hardware devices (sound,
    video, firewire, and USB), and offers a VAST range of free software
    applications for multimedia production, audio and video streaming,
    sound composition and synthesis, 3D modeling, photography, peer2peer
    filesharing, web browsing, desktop publishing, word processing, cd
    burning, email, encryption, remote conferencing and even more.

    It also includes many games and a world atlas navigator.
    It does automatic clustering, joining the CPU power between any other
    dyne:bolic on the local network.
    Last but not least: it works on modded XBOX game consoles.

    Dyne:bolic is shaped on the needs of media activists and artists to
    stimulate the production and not only the fruition of digital and
    analog informations. It takes birth as a grassroot effort to spread
    free software and the spirit of sharing information and knowledge.


    First of all the audio streaming system offered by dyne:bolic is
    completely revamped, now featuring new versions of MuSE and Icecast
    it offers the possibility to stream your radio using the 100% free
    protocol Ogg/Vorbis also at the same time as mp3 for a smooth
    transition for your listeners.

    Then we have a major bugfix contributed by Richard Griffith which
    fixes outstanding bugs in harddisk and USB nesting.

    Also thanks to Isazi for his help compiling Audacity-1.2, we have
    upgraded this audio editing studio to a new major release offering
    much more stability and precision, plus hundreds of audio effects!

    It follows a juicy update of some major softwares like Blender and
    Cinelerra, plus the new AviDemux video editor, which together with
    the versatile LiVES software by Salsaman complete the spectrum of
    approaches available now for free software video editing.

    Here it follows the detailed ChangeLog:

:: UPDATE YOUR DOCK! <--- important for who's allready using version 1.2

    Remember that if you docked dyne:bolic copying the dyne/ directory on
    your harddisk, now you need to update it copying over the new CD's
    directory in order to upgrade the system!
    You'll find more informations about docking in the dynebolic user's
    manual available on http://dyne.org/~jaromil/dynebolic-man/html
