Why: the stable version is from 2010 and so has very old drivers, the last beta is very stable and much more suggested, the beta version also includes compiz support and is much more featured and reliable.
UPDATE: Because the new Stable version is on the way, the old one can only be downloaded from the history torrent.
Torrent note: I have no ways to seed the torrent, please keep it alive so other people can still download the old versions.
Required donation to install for this version: Yes. Also; The next stable version will not require to donate to install it.
Please use the Beta version if you want to install it cost-free, we don’t want to restrict anybody to use Elive and we are in the path to remove any limitation, but we cannot change the old versions!
Boot from USB? This version is made for cdrom mode and USB is not supported, but you can use a tool like unetbootin that can make it work (so it modifies the bootable files), you can download our own copy of a verified old version that works.
