AV Linux 2017.4.9 Released!
An updated 2017 ISO for AV Linux has been released, it features a new Audio Routing system,
many refinements and improvements and probably the most stable and functional collection of
Applications across the board to date! The older AV Linux 2016.8.30 ISO’s are currently still
in the FTPs and will be phased out soon, make sure to download the 2017.4.9 release.
- Aligned with Debian 9 ‘Stretch’ instead of generic ‘Testing’.

- Please favour the linuxaudio.org and Bytemark mirrors, Bandshed has limited bandwidth!
- The ArdourVST Build on AV Linux 32bit will take a bit of time to run first launch.
- The KX Studio repositories generate APT warnings that are harmless, these have been reported.
Donations of any size are welcomed!!
Best Regards, Enjoy!
