To quote: Hi! I have published Red Ribbon GNU/Linux LXDE 14.03.

Red Ribbon LXDE 14.03 is based on Debian Jessie and It includes the following changes:

  • Kernel 3.12.6 with the Graf_chokolo's, Marcan's and Gitbrew's patches.
  • New version of the installer with some features added and some bugs fixed.
  • New version of the Red Ribbon theme.
  • Iceweasel (Firefox) updated to the 27 release.
  • Blueman is now the bluetooth manager.
  • Added the SMTube application to play videos from Youtube.

I believe that Red Ribbon GNU/Linux is already a mature distribution and I've decided that the version will be based on the publication date, using the year followed by the month, like other distributions.

Also, I'm working in others Red Ribbon flavors based on others desktops, so I've included the desktop name on the release name.
