Without losing the characteristics of the first, this version was produced within the pandemic. Delinux2 has some specific characteristics that make it indispensable in the pandemic .:
Videoconferences and usability are among the main objectives of this edition.
With the explosion of video conferences as a need for communication, people are somewhat lost between what to use and how to do it. The result has been a general mess.
Jitsi Meet, is the most simple, powerful and easy to use video conferencing software, and totally free! Now it comes to the Delinux desktop. Just click once on the icon and Jitsi opens in your language, ready to add or enter the room, just enter the name of the room. Easy to use!
Another powerful feature is Obs-Studio. A very useful tool that works as a "dressing room" for cameras. Difficult to use on Linux due to the configuration of the virtual camera; in Delinux, the software is already configured, ready to use.
It can be on Google Meet, on Zoom, and of course, on Jitsi, just authorize "Delinux Cam"; she is there, showing what happens inside the Obs-Studio "dressing room". If Obs-Studio does not support your hardware, you can use the alternative for GPUs not supported by the software, configured in Delinux. Remembering that the virtual camera feature does not work in live mode.
Delinux 2 also comes with some news from the world of free software:
Version 1.0 of Inkscape promises a lot. The powerful vector drawing software is more complete and full of features. Electronic publishing in Free Software leaves nothing to be desired in the face of proprietary software. Inkscape is concrete proof of this. Try importing Corel files, working with layers, etc., etc.
Another powerful tool that has a new look and in Delinux is Scribus. Create professional publications from printed books to sophisticated PDFs with the powerful Scribus.
The newest version of Openshot; one of the most popular free video editors, is also present at Delinux!
Pencil2d, a powerful illustration and animation tool, is available in this edition.
