Icaros Desktop is a pre-configured AROS desktop environment for the PC platform, distributed on a bootable live media. The AROS Research Operating System is a open source lightweight, efficient and flexible desktop operating system, aiming at being compatible with AmigaOS 3.1 at the API level, while improving on it in many areas.

A new update for Icaros Desktop is available on the main server. Users of Icaros Desktop 1.1.4 can download and install it straight from AROS using OWB, unpacking it with untgz and installing it with Icaros' LiveUpdater, while others should manually download update discs and bring their version up to 1.1.4 as well. Complete releases of Icaros Desktop Live! and Light will follow in the next hours. This revision updates system files and AROS kernel to September 09th, 2009 nightly build, brings a more complete SDL/MESA library subsystem and fixes some stability issues encountered with former release.

LiveUpdater "Internet" Feature is temporarily disabled
Since updating to version 1.1.3 to 1.1.4 created too much issues, due to a mysterious problem in the ISO unpacking/mounting procedure, I've temporarily disabled the Internet feature until problems are gone. LiveUpdater will continue checking for updates (if set to automatic) and warn you that a new version is available, but you will have to download it manually with OWB and then extract it somewhere with the untgz command. LiveUpdater can then be use to upgrade Icaros Desktop from a ISO file.
