Hey CloudReady Fans!

Hot on the heels of some fixes we shipped to v59.3 yesterday, we're happy to be promoting v60.1 to the Dev channel of CloudReady: Home Edition today. If you're interested, subscribe to the Dev or Beta channels for your over-the-air update which should be live any minute.

Release Notes for v60.1:

  • OS Upgrade to 60
  • Kernel upgrade: We did a minor, stability update to the kernel from 4.4.83 to 4.4.88
  • Touchpad fix:  In v59, the "swap primary mouse button" setting will reverse not only the left and right mouse buttons, but also the touchpad's buttons and 1- and 2-finger taps. In v60, only mouse-buttons should be impacted by this setting.

[UPDATE - 10/12/17]:

We're re-releasing v60.1, this time to the Beta and Dev channels, with fixes for issues that we originally listed as problems!

K̶n̶o̶w̶n̶ ̶I̶s̶s̶u̶e̶s̶ Additional Improvements

  • Fix for Quad-core Intel Bay Trail processors : We've added a fix that is aimed at all quad-core Intel Bay Trail processors to prevent freezing and other performance issues. If you're using a model that this applies to, we'd love your feedback! 
  • Fix for more touchscreen/convertible laptops:  We saw a number of tablet-style laptops that failed to boot in v59.3. We've included a fix that we think will help another large group of machines keep their touchscreens functional. 


Despite these fixes, unstable releases often have unforeseen bugs. We rely upon Dev and Beta channel users to report those to us in our forums, so if you're ok with a little instability, please jump to this new release and let us know what you think!
