Webconverger 4.7 Released

Hey!
The new version of Webconverger is out! Well those who don't know what webconverger is read this :

Webconverger is a Debian based Linux live operating system designed to be used solely for accessing web applications. It can be run from various media like CD, USB flash drive or Compact Flash card, version 3.4 also introduced an install to hard drive option. Webconverger is available in two main editions - mini and maxi. Webconverger is an open source project and has its own public git repository. Webconverger is pre-compiled to run on any x86 hardware so far. It does not have high system requirements and will also run on older machines easily.

Additions and Fixes in new version :
  • Added iptables firewall
  • Fix UA string for Hotmail
  • file:/// disabled in the latest kiosk extension.
  • Remove previous wireless default to join any open network.
  • Iceweasel 3.0.9
  • CUPS printing support re-instated with a Firewall to rule to allow for printer sharing broadcasts
  • 2.6.29 kernel backport, which means even better hardware support
  • Xpdf dropped in favour of a working printing dialog with Acroread ? there are some embedding issues when you first run it, [Ctrl+q] is needed to close the PDF viewer. Also saving allows file browsing.

Known issues
  • Wrong default locale dictionary

  • live-initscripts
