The Solus project develops an independent desktop distribution and the Budgie desktop environment. According to the latest Solus newsletter, the developers are polishing features and fixing bugs. The news letter mentions new fixes for Google on-line account integration, a revamped website for Solus and a more natural organization of the distribution's Help Centre. The news letter also mentions fixes for Bluetooth support: "Thanks to our Patrons and donors on PayPal for their continued support of the project, Ikey was able to sponsor my purchase of some Bluetooth speakers, specifically the Creative T3250 wireless speakers and an Asus USB-BT400 Bluetooth USB adapter. This was done as we had received reports of non-functionality Bluetooth A2DP audio on some systems and needed hardware to test and validate solutions in a more rapid fashion than what have may otherwise been possible through conversing and testing via IRC. The issue was a result of GDM starting its own instance of PulseAudio, something I addressed in our GDM 3.20.1 rel 22. Furthermore, I did enablement of bluez, namely enabling a stateless config and shipping our vendor-provided configuration with AutoEnable set to true, so Bluetooth controllers are automatically enabled." These and other updates to the Solus distribution can be found in the project's newsletter.
