The Frugalware Developer Team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Frugalware 1.5pre2, the second technical preview of the upcoming 1.5 stable release.

Here are some of the major improvements, fixes and updates since 1.5pre1:

  • Package updates:
    • Linux kernel 2.6.39
    • LibreOffice 3.4
    • KDE 4.6.4
  • New features:
    • The boot splash is now provided by plymouth.
    • i686 and x86_64 kernels can now boot from EFI. (However, the bootloader is not yet installable from setup.)
