- Updated packages: Linux kernel 3.10.17, XOrg server 1.14.2, GNOME 3.8, KDE 4.11, LibreOffice 126.96.36.199, Mozilla Firefox 22.0 to name a few major components.
- netconfig has been replaced by NetworkManager
- frugalwareutils has been replaced by the new fvbeutils
- vi binary symlinks are now configurable, used to be hardcoded to their packages
- old display-manager-legacy.service has been dropped for the new systemd method of individual service files
