    •  29 Feb 2008 15:39

      Release Notes: This release fixes adding of swap partitions to the fstab file, upgrades to the newest ntfs-3g and fuse packages, adds the newest busybox, and fixes the posixovl filesystem to be less resource-hungry.

      •  02 Mar 2007 18:24

        Release Notes: This release adds support for international IO encoding while mounting DOS filesystems (FAT and NTFS). Simply add the iocharset=utf8 boot option, and all disks will be mounted with this iocharset all the time. This works even for the from= and changes= boot parameters. (Replace "utf8" with your desired charset, e.g., iocharset=iso8859-2 for Central European Windows).

          Release Notes: aufs is used instead of unionfs, which brings great stability and features. squashfs has been patched with LZMA compression, so compressed filesystems are 30% smaller. You no longer need to patch your distribution's startup scripts in order to remove remounting of the root filesystem as read/write. udev is no longer needed in your distribution, since the devices are created during live startup. Handling of booting from a USB device was improved. A script to create a bootable disk (including USB) in Linux and Windows was added.

            Release Notes: This release adds the "fromiso" boot argument and modifies the behavior of the "changes" boot argument. It also fixes "load" and "notload" cheat codes.
