Breathing a New Life into AriOS

After failing to release AriOS 4 final on time, I was very disappointed and project was in a dormant status for several months.
But a nice and energetic developer nemed Mehdi Beygi recently joined me and Hamid and he’s been doing very well during the recent weeks.
Mehdi has moved our old code to Bitbucket and now we have a GIT repo thanks to his efforts.
He has also revised the code and fixed a number of bugs.
Right now we have a working build system and we can build our 32 and 64-bit flavors pretty effortlessly.
The list of apps and third party repos is also ready so nothing should be able to keep us from releasing shortly.

If you are a developer you can join us at to contribute code or report issues.

    I wish you the best in your endeavors. With GNOME Shell and Unity being somewhat divisive, AriOS with AWN makes for a really attractive alternative, and I await your next release.

    PS If in the long term you decide to pursue GNOME Shell (w/extensions) as the default interface, I hope you can make it more desktop-user friendly out of the box than vanilla GNOME Shell. Also, do you have any thoughts on whether you will be using Nautilus or Nemo going forward?

    Thanks. We’re doing our best to tweak Gnome Shell to provide our users with a better experience. Regarding Nautilus/Nemo, we need to discuss this with the team for the next release.
