BodhiLinux 3.1.0 Release notes and upgrade

Jeff Hoogland has announced the first update release of Bodhi Linux 3.1.0 for Bodhi 3’s stable branch on August 12, 2015. This release is a bigger deal for the Bodhi team than our previous update releases have been in the past. The reason for this is because this release is the first to use the Moksha Desktop which we have forked from E17. Because it is built on the rock solid foundation that E17 provides, even this first release of the Moksha Desktop is stable and is something everybody feel comfortable using in a production environment.

Then I have checked Bodhi QuickStart page and I come to know its latest version because earlier it shows Enlightenment Desktop Link and now its shows Moksha Desktop Link.
