Webconverger 14.0 show casing bumblebee integration

We have been hard at work this summer and 14.0 marks several major enhancements:

  • New: 686 kernel, which should show better performance on multi-core hardware
  • New: nVidia 302.17 support via bumblebee & VirtualGL for easing deployment
  • New: Mozilla Firefox 14.0.1, using the official distribution
  • New: noclean API option for deployments where the default clean slate is not desirable (e.g. Granny's bungalow)
  • New: swarp API for mouse positioning, many thanks to the suckless community
  • Update: Critical Flash update 11.2.202.238
  • Fixes: Better xrandr screen handling, for portrait orientation try xrandr-all=--rotate%20right
  • Fixes: Time synchronization doesn't alter the BIOS clock
  • Fixes: Logging tweaks to increase signal over noise
  • Fixes: Better lock down
