OMLx 4.1 now supports package compression in zstd instead of .xz. Ffmpeg supports av1 decoding via dav1d and nvdec/nvenc for NVIDIA gpu. And chromium now includes VAAPI (hardware decoding video h264 / vp9) support.
Also available a version specifically for current AMD processors (Ryzen, ThreadRipper, EPYC) that outperforms the generic version by taking advantage of new features in those processors.
We warmly thank our developers, testers and bug reporters, all our support teams as well as all people at large who are working so hard to make this technically advanced and beautifully artworked distribution.
As with any new stable release, we strongly recommend to backup your data and to perform a fresh install of the new operating system, to avoid any conflict with existing configuration settings.
