Momonga Linux 4 is released.
Welcome to Momonga Linux 4
To our regular users, Momonga Project wishs to express our most gratitude for continuing support.
Thank you very much for using Momonga Linux. Also for those who touch Momonga Linux for the first
time, very nice to meet you!
It is our highest pleasure and exaltation to hereby release our latest version, Momonga Linux 4.
Changes in creating iso images
Creating iso images other than official images using Pungi and livecd-tool, both are fruit from
Fedora Project, is now possible. For details please refer to the document how to use pungi.
* From Sun-Java to gcj
For standard java applications Sun-Java was included from Momonga Linux 3 but we decided to use
gcj instead since ppc64 architecture is now one of suppoted architectures. Java related packages
are greatly increased in numbers.
* OpenVZ kernel
Kernel for OpenVZ is available. OpenVZ is an open source version of Virtuozzo provided by SWsoft
and is a method of virtualization. Comparing to Xen, memory usage is more efficient as utilization
occurs only when actual memory usage is necessary, and therefore clustering lots of servers can be
realized. It is popular in enterprise scenes.
* Latest Web frame work
Starting with Ruby on Rails, many Web frame work used often for creating Web2.0 compliant sites
** Ruby on Rails
