KWheezy 1.3 Has Officially Been Released

From the official changelog:

  • Updated to Debian 7.2
  • Added GPT partitioning support to the installer (requires BIOS/Legacy boot).
  • A new post-installation wizard adds polish. Hopefully the need to add a regular user account will be clearer.
  • A few redundant (duplicate functionality) applications have been removed.
  • The administrator account has UID/GID changed to 999, so the first real user will be 1000. Thus, more compatable with other distro’s.
  • The menu has been tidied up, so it should be easier to browse.
  • Kwheezy Keyboard Selector now has a textbox for testing the new configuration.
  • Some other minor tweaks and polish.
