Frugalware 0.9pre1 (Solaria) 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
    • Several new Drupal modules
    • Many new octave modules.
    • More than 150 other new packages

Please refer to the Frugalware Testing ChangeLog for more information.

We now have a feature schedule for new functionalities we plan to implement before we release Solaria as stable.
