For an online version of these release notes, please visit:
## Definitions compatibility
The Baserock reference systems are defined using version 6 of
the definitions format. In 15.34, version 5 was used.
The baserock-15.47 tag of definitions can be built with Morph from 15.34.
The version of Morph in Baserock 15.47 can build definitions versions 6 and 7.
For more information about these versions, see here:
## Changes since 15.34
This release is packed full of awesome, see below!
Yes that's right we have GNOME now :D
This is still work in progress, but the basic components you need
to run a gnome desktop are there.
* Python 3 by default
(Python 2 will still be selected if you're building any components
that require it.)
* locales! All glibc supported locales are now installed by default!
* Schemas for definitions format
* Rawdisk partitioning support
* install-files: allow definition of manifests in multiple variables
* clang installed by default
* llvm 3.7
* linux-user-chroot v2015.1
* git man pages
* Morph updates:
- Add support for Baserock definitions version 7.
Build systems will soon be defined in a DEFAULTS file in definitions,
when this happens you'll be able to define your own custom build systems!
- It's now an error to define two chunks with the same name within
the same system.
* Other bugfixes and improvements: see the Git logs of
for a full list.
Thanks to everyone who has provided code, documentation, sponsorship or
