Beta Release | Endless OS 3.7.6~beta1

The first beta of Endless OS 3.7.6 is out. Please follow these instructions if you want to join the beta testing program; bear in mind that the chance of encountering bugs is higher than in a regular stable release. As always, please ensure your data is backed up!

Hack

Updated hardware support

Added support for newer generation (Comet Lake) Intel RST© SATA devices. The behavior of the keyboard backlight OSD on certain hardware models have been improved. Internal speakers which had stopped working on certain Asus machines after a BIOS update should start working again with this update.

Other Improvements and Changes

  • Updated Chromium. We’ve updated to Chromium 79.0.3945.79 to bring the latest security fixes to Endless’ built-in web browser.
  • General improvements to App Center. The App Center has gained a series of small improvements and bug fixes in this version, improving its overall stability and performance.

Known Issues

  • It is not possible to turn off the keyboard backlight on certain Asus laptops. This is currently under investigation and will be addressed on a future release.

I’ve published 3.7.6~beta2. It’s almost identical to ~beta1, except:

  • The BCM43341B Bluetooth adapter, used in at least one hardware model, had stopped working from Endless OS 3.7.0; this update re-enables this device.
  • Translation updates
