2006-05-25 - Posted by VMiklos

The Frugalware Developer Team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Frugalware 0.5pre1, the first technical preview of the upcoming 0.5 stable release for the i686 architecture.
A short and incomplete list of the more than 3000 changes since 0.4:

  • Updates:
    • GNU C Library 2.4
    • GCC 4.1.0
    • KDE 3.5.2
    • More than 300 new packages

  • New features:
    • Created a new tool, called 'setup', to summarize the available configuration tools. (screenshot)
    • Localized the package manager. (currently German and Hungarian language support available)
    • Added Brazilian and Indonesian translation to the setup.

  • Known problems:
    • The dvd image is more than 4.7 GB so it will not fit on a single-layer DVD.

Please refer to the Frugalware Development ChangeLog for more information.
