Release notes for Regolith 1.6

Regolith R1.6 is a feature release which includes several improvements and optimizations. Regolith 1.6’s primary feature is a return of the ISO installation method.

Features

FeatureScreenshotDescription
Return of Regolith Linux ISORegolith 1.6 Login ScreenUp to Regolith 1.4.1, we hand-built each ISO for major version releases. This became too brittle and time intensive, and so work began on build automation to generate the ISO. This took quite awhile to complete but is now available for the 1.6 release.
New Look: MidnightMidnight LookFabian (naib864) has provided a distinctive new look with new font, icons, and GTK theme.
New Look: Solarized LightSolarized Light LookRicardo Pérez (ricpelo) has provided a solarized light theme.
New Status Indicator: app-launcherRegolith user Laurent provided the idea to add a status indicator to launch Rofi, and so i3xrocks-app-launcher was added for those that prefer to use the mouse to launch apps.

Fixes
