Few days passed since the announcement of the discontinuation of Crunchbang, until not one but two continuation attempts appeared: On the one hand a user named computermouth who said “Ok, I get to work to at least put together a crunchbang based on Jessie. For now I'm going to call him Crunchbang ++ (#! ++) ». There is already a beta based on Debian netinstall only for 32 bits. It remains to know the final name and logo (many do not like that they continue with that name, much less that they adapt the cover of "God Save the Queen" of the Sex Pistols with the face of corenominal).
On the other hand Unia, together with other users who did research, created Bunsen Labs Linux and they ensure that this is going to be the true successor community distro to Crunchbang. For now they do not have enough infrastructure and coordination but they also it is planted as another option.
And as for Bodhi after the 4 months of retirement that its creator Jeff Hoogland took, already version 3.0.0 finally came out, based on Ubuntu 14.04 and with Enlightenment E19.3, Terminology 0.8.0, ePad 0.9.0, kernel 3.16, Midori 0.5.9 and Numix icons come by default.
