2006-03-02 - Posted by VMiklos

The Frugalware Developer Team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Frugalware 0.4rc1-i686, the first release candidate of 0.4-i686.
A short and incomplete list of changes since 0.4pre2-i686:

  • New features:
    • Created a package synchronization client and daemon (syncpkg and syncpkgd) to update packages faster on arches other than i686 (x86_64 and later ppc).
    • Implemented fwcpan, a new tool to install any cpan module, just like it would when you install it with the pacman.
    • Split OpenOffice, now all language packs and dictionaries can be installed/removed separately.
    • More than 80 new packages: Xgl (with a step by step howto), beagle, fvwm-crystal, cdcat, klamav, kcheckgmail, xvidcap, synaptics, rt2500, rdiff-backup and much more!

  • Updates: As usual, Frugalware comes with the latest version of upstream stable releases, including:
    • Linux kernel
    • Perl 5.8.8
    • Firefox
    • Thunderbird 1.5
    • KDE 3.5.1
    • GNOME 2.12.3
