Frugalware 1.4rc2 (Nexon) released

The Frugalware Developer Team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Frugalware 1.4rc2, the second candidate of the upcoming 1.4 stable release. Here are some of the major improvements, fixes and updates since 1.4rc1:

  • Package updates:
  • Linux 2.6.37 + fixes
  • KDE SC 4.5
  • Drupal 7 obsoletes Drupal 5. If a drupal-5 package has its own drupal-6 counterpart (eg. drupal-cck), then the drupal-6 one (drupal6-cck) replaces the old one automatically. If a drupal-5 package DOES NOT have its own drupal6 counterpart, then the drupal6 package replaces it - sorry for the inconvenience, those drupal-5 bastards are not even supported by upstream.
  • systemd v16 - and 5 more packages now support systemd using native unit files
  • Fixes:
  • The CD/DVD installer can perform fully offline installation again.
  • Various user interface fixes (missing icons in desktop files, etc.)
  • Missing koffice localization packages are back (they were missing since the integration of KDE4).

Please refer to the Frugalware Nexon ChangeLog for more information.
