EasyOS 4.0

Significant structural changes since then have warranted a major-version number bump, now 4.0. Not a complete list, nor detailed, just some brief highlights of new features since 3.4.7, in no particular order: The download file is 'easy-4.0-amd64.img' - no longer compressed, which simplifies writing the image to a drive. During normal usage, everything happens in RAM and there are no writes to the drive. This potentially means that a cheap flash stick (likely without wear-leveling) will last 'forever'. Squashfs files, including 'easy.sfs', are now lz4-hc compressed. This, in combination with running totally in RAM, results in noticeable speed improvements. App startup and container startup now very fast. There is now a 'save' icon on the desktop. You choose when to flush your work from RAM to drive, or not, or let it happen at shutdown. Note, it is possible to flip back to the old mode, direct writes to the drive, without a 'save' icon. An old problem of unclean filesystem shutdown, due to the layered filesystem on '/', has been solved. Official announcement Download EasyOS
