2005-12-07 - Posted by VMiklos

The Frugalware Developer Team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Frugalware 0.4pre1-i686, the first technical preview release of 0.4-i686.
A short and incomplete list of changes since 0.3-i686:

  • New features:
    • Rewritten setup from scratch in C. The new framework will allow to implement a graphical installer, too.
    • Added lots of new features to the setup, such as expert and normal mode, ignoring (non fatal) errors.
    • Added several translations to the setup.
    • The init script system was redesigned: more user-friendly error messages, now uses gettext for translations.
    • More than 100 new packages: treewm, octave, toolame, mingw, ddd, tellico and much more!

  • Updates: As usual, Frugalware comes with the latest version of upstream stable releases, including:
    • Linux kernel
    • KDE 3.5.0
    • Firefox 1.5
    • GCC 4.0.2
    • GNU C Library 2.3.6
    • GNOME 2.12.2
