Linux Release Details:
Frugalware Linux 0.9 Pre 1 has been released
The Frugalware Developer Team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Frugalware 0.9pre1, the first technical preview of the upcoming 0.9 stable release.
A short and incomplete list of changes since 0.8:

Improvements:

  • The network configuration utility now lists card details next to interface names, in case you would now know what is the interface name for your cards.


  • The USB installer is now a plain image, you can copy it to your USB stick under any operating system (you needed a running Linux system to install the previous version).


  • Changed the CHOST variable to $arch-frugalware-linux from a mix of $arch-pc-linux-gnu / $arch-unknown-linux, which generally causes more consistency and helps reporting bugs for upstream developers.


  • Improved security and general user support. We work together with other Linux vendors to provide better security support, and now our forums are mirrored on a mailing list, so more developers can help you.

  • More than 150 other minor features / bugs have been implemented / fixed resulting in more than 2400 changes since the last release.



Package updates:

  • Linux 2.6.25 + security fixes

  • GCC 4.3.0
  • GNOME 2.22
  • More than 900 other package updates


New packages:

  • About 40 new Java library
