Cucumber Linux 1.0 has been Released
After over one year of development, we are excited to finally announce that Cucumber Linux version 1.0 has been released! We believe that this release holds true to the original mission of Cucumber Linux: to create a usable, practical Linux Distribution without Systemd that follows the Unix Philosophy, useable as both a desktop and server distribution. This release of Cucumber Linux comes with a rich array of features, including (but not limited to): the Linux Kernel version 4.9 LTS, GNU Userspace utilities, System V Init, Apache 2.4, MariaDB 10.1, PHP 5.6, Xorg 7.7, XFCE 4.12, Firefox and Thunderbird version 52 and LibreOffice 5.3.
This version of Cucumber Linux will enjoy over 10 months of full support, followed by an additional four months of selective support, putting the end of life date at September 30, 2018. Version 1.1 will be released at least 3 months before the end of full support, so there will be plenty of time to upgrade your systems when the time comes. For more information see the supported versions page.

Cucumber Linux 1.0 Release Candidate 2 is now Available
The second release candidate for Cucumber Linux 1.0 is now available. This release candidate fixes a few bugs in the installer (namely it fixes UEFI support and updates the installer's kernel to 4.9.x). Like the first release candidate, this version has the potential to become the official 1.0 release if no critical bugs are found. Again if you find any last minute bugs, make sure to get the bug reports in quickly.
