Some observations :
1). Installation took eleven minutes from beginning of Live session until restart prompt.
2). Running an apt update && apt upgrade -y showed that packages.bodhilinux.com was present as a repository, as expected. Pulseaudio was updated during the apt transaction. I have not had the opportunity to actually test audio playback yet.
3). Font rendering seems much better. This may seem like a minor consideration, but the improvement (to me) seems considerable.
4). Items in the bottom panel? shelf? iBar? scale better when its size is reduced and look good.
5). After the Live session finished, the system rebooted, Moksha launched and index.html from /usr/share/bodhi/quickstart/quickstartEN opened in Geany instead of Midori or Chromium. I believe that this is not the expected behavior.
This looks like a very good release. I look forward to testing it further. Thanks again Jeff.
