Information about Porteus Kiosk 5.2.0

Porteus is a fast, portable and modular live CD/USB medium based on Slackware Linux. The distribution started as a community remix of Slax, another Slackware-based live CD (which is no longer actively maintained), with KDE 3 as the default desktop for the i486 edition and a stripped-down KDE 4 as the desktop environment for the x86_64 flavour. The lightweight LXDE is available as an alternative desktop environment.

Tomasz Jokiel has announced the release of Porteus Kiosk 5.2.0, a new stable version of the projects single-purpose, Gentoo-based Linux distribution designed for web kiosks and restricted to internet browsing only: "Im pleased to announce that Porteus Kiosk 5.2.0 is now available for download. Major software upgrades in this release include Linux kernel 5.20.25, Google Chrome 87.0.4280.141 and Mozilla Firefox 78.8.0 ESR. Packages from the userland are upgraded to portage snapshot tagged on 2021-03-14. This is the last kiosk release which supports Adoble FlashPlayer plugin. Within the next 6 months we are planning to upgrade the browsers to versions where Flash support is removed by the upstream developers. If your web pages still contain a Flash content then please migrate it to HTML 5 and JavaScript as soon as possible. In Kiosk 5.2.0 we have added a libva-intel-media-driver package and updated the VAAPI stack. This is in preparation for a much welcome hardware accelerated video decode which should become a reality in the next kiosk version on selected GPUs. Digital signage solutions should benefit the most from this feature.
