Greetings everyone, on the 9th of June we presented to you, the Alpha release of Hamara Sugam 2.0 .
Now we are excited to present to you the Beta Release of Hamara Sugam.
Hamara Sugam is the lighter version of Hamara Linux targeted at computers with low computing resoursces. It utilises the [Mate](http://mate-desktop.org/) desktop Environment which works great on systems which are low on computing resoursces. It is also simple to understand and use for people with any level of expertise with computers from newbies to pro users alike.

The detailed changes and bugs which were resolved during migration of Hamara Sugam from Alpha to Beta stage can be seen in the detailed changelog at the end of this blog post. The most notable of these changes are as follows:
### Moving towards Calamares installer for installation of Hamara Sugam.
We realised that Debian installer is a great installer with detailed options for installation of an operating system. At the same time debian installer is sometimes confusing for newbies who are trying to do installations. Many times even for those with some experience.
This led us to consider alternate installers. We [tried](https://wiki.hamaralinux.org/wiki/index.php/Porting_Ubiquity) to port the most famous of them all Ubiquity. But after a lot of tries with it we abandoned the effort on Ubiquity, as it led us into a depenancy hell that we did not have time to resolve. That is when we discovered [`Calamares`](https://calamares.io). The Distribution independent Installer. And we integrated it with Hamara Sugam.

Calamares is an easy to use installer providing the options suitable for newbies as well as for people who want to do fine grained configurations while installing the operating system on there machine.

### Generic Names for Applications
We decided that Applications should have a generic name, based on there purpose. With this opinion, we renamed a few applications. So `Mate terminal` becomes just `Terminal` or `Mate color chooser` becomes just `Color chooser` and like wise. All this naming has been done to make sure the application names should be generic wherever posible.

### Update to Kernel 4.12
Although our immediate upstream Debian is using the Linux Kernel version 4.9 we would be using the recent Kernel version 4.12 instead.
