基于Fedora的Linux发行，VortexBox 2.3 发布
VortexBox是基于Fedora的Linux发行，它将一台没在使用的计算机转变为一台易于使用的音乐服务器或电唱机。一旦VortexBox加载好，它能自动从CD唱片转换出FLAC和MP3文件、对文件进行ID3标记、下载封面图样。VortexBox之后便能使这些文件服务于网络媒体播放软件。音乐文件也能以流媒体形式运送到Windows或Mac OS X操作系统。
Andrew Gillis has announced the release of VortexBox 2.3, the latest version of the project's Fedora-based distribution that turns an unused computer into an easy-to-use music server or jukebox: "It has been over a year since our last full release of VortexBox. There have been small incremental updates but not a big release. VortexBox 2.3 is finally ready! Thanks to the work of our community the release has a huge number of features and updates. Although the interface looks the same, most of the features are in the underlying technology: SqueezeBox Server 7.8.0, the latest release from Community Squeeze; Fedora 20 with better hardware support for new DACs, motherboards; Squeezelite as a built-in player; full DSD support - play DSD direct to a DSD capable DAC or transcode to PCM in-line for non DSD DACs; backup and restore now does the LMS settings as well; network-based install so you can install from a USB key...."
