2006-02-02 - Posted by VMiklos

The Frugalware Developer Team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Frugalware 0.4pre2-i686, the second technical preview release of 0.4-i686.
A short and incomplete list of changes since 0.4pre1-i686:

  • New features:
    • Libificated pacman to meet our needs, and the newborn pacman 3 has become the default package manager.
    • Network configuration has been redesigned, now we support various network profiles, and much more network parameters (hardware address, multiple ip addresses on a single interface, etc) than before.
    • Created a new, more verbose documentation.
    • Switched to udev as the default hotplug multiplexer.
    • Bugfix: now automounting for usb sticks works fine, not only for CDs or DVDs.
    • More than 100 new packages - on client side: wepdecrypt, konversation, ltp, gtkpod, firefox extensions, etc.
    • New server side packages: xen (with dom0 and domU kernels), darcsweb, rails, perl modules and much more!

  • Behind the scenes:
    • Added package splitting support.
    • Started to work on a PPC port.

  • Updates: As usual, Frugalware comes with the latest version of upstream stable releases, including:
    • Linux kernel 2.6.15
    • Modularized Xorg 7.0
    • Apache 2.2.0
