Ashampoo Burning Studio 2016 is the universal solution for everything burning-related. Burn data, music or movies safely, create backups or rip and burn music CDs. The integrated cover editor allows you to create individual covers, retrieve CD titles and work with multiple themes. Copying discs is not a problem anymore even with on-the-fly modifications. Creating or viewing disc images is easy and even archiving large data sets spanning multiple discs is possible thanks to disc spanning. The new Burning Studio 2016 does not only support new file formats but neatly integrates with Windows 10 with support for jump lists and notifications. The included support for M-DISC technology is ideal to create permanent and durable data archives and the ability to also backup external devices such as cellphones, flash drives or tablets make this a true all-rounder.
The 4MLinux project has started the new year with the release of 4MLinux 15.0. The 4MLinux project produces a small sized, independently developed, multi-purpose distribution. The new 15.0 release features mostly software updates.
“4MLinux 15.0 stable released. The status of the 4MLinux 15.0 series has been changed to stable. Major change in the core of the system, which now includes GNU C Library 2.22. As a response to the requests from 4MLinux users, the following applications have been added: Audacity (digital audio editor), GNU GRUB (boot loader), InfraRecorder (CD/DVD writing program), LXInput and LXRandR (small yet powerful setup tools from the LXDE project). Additionally, an important change in the 4MLinux LAMP Server, which now uses Postfix to handle emails sent via PHP mail. More details can be found on the release announcement“
The 4MLinux project, which creates a minimal rescue and utility distribution, has released 4MLinux 13.1.
