Release Notes: Lua OS now supports both English and German keyboards and, in many areas, offers screen text for both languages. More often-requested software packages are now already included on the CD. Lua OS can now explicitly be transformed into a single-user or a real, remotely accessible, multi-user operating system. A much more comprehensive manual was added.
Release Notes: This release introduces the "use" shorthand command for greatly-reduced boilerplate in all scripts.
Release Notes: This release adds automated system tweaks that make the Windows key functional and enable the tapping function of notebook touch pads.
Release Notes: There is now a virtual file system for Lua OS apps (providing access to all system sources as well as user files). User files can now be organized in subdirectories. All bugs seen in the 0.10 demo video were fixed. The sessions list in the start dialog now shows additional information.
Release Notes: Lua OS is now bootable and installable and is primarily distributed as a Live-CD. This release is more compatible with certain graphics cards. It can automatically upgrade itself to the latest version. The desktop now features a background image.
