Dear users,

The Lunar team proudly announce the final release of Lunar Linux 1.6.5 codename 'Mare Ingenii'!

The last known issues with the ISO have been resolved. We added support for hybrid ISO in the last 
minute, which mean it's a lot more easy to install lunar from an usb-stick from now on. 
The developers are currently brainstorming and voting on ideas to further improve the state of Lunar,
an announcement about this will be made later. We also plan to let our users, yes you, to chip in with
ideas that will be up for voting within our community, but more on that later. 

Enjoy the release of Lunar 1.6.5!
