Issues second quarterly release for 2013

The team behind Fuduntu, a Fedora-derived distribution designed to offer an Ubuntu-like experience, have released a new version of the distro.

The team has also released a 'lite' version of the distro. Fuduntu Lite cuts down on the number of applications installed by default, using around 3-4GB less of hard drive space, according to the release announcement.

The new version of Fuduntu, Fuduntu 2013.2, for the first time includes the XMBC media centre and LibreOffice 4, as well as updated versions of popular applications including the GIMP image editor, Thunderbird and the Firefox and Chromium Web browsers.

Funduntu is one of the Linux distributions authorised by Valve to distribute the Steam for Linux gaming and digital distribution platform and 2013.2 includes an updated version of the Mesa library.

Fuduntu is a GNOME 2-based distro first released in late 2010. The distribution has a focus on ease of use, stability, performance and power efficiency.
