    The Frugalware Developer Team is pleased to announce the immediate
    availability of Frugalware 0.3pre1-i686, the first preview of the
    upcoming 0.3-i686 stable release.
    A short list of most important improvements and news since 0.2:
      * Improvements:
           + Added a new tool: repoman. It helps you to compile packages
             from source, allowing to automatically create and install
             closed-source packages like realplayer or skype (repoman
             merge packagename). Also it allows you to download all
             package's buildscript (repoman update) and recompile them
             with your compiler flags, "a la Gentoo".
           + Our build system now supports more than one architecture
             which means you can expect an x86_64 preview release soon.
           + All packages got their group, so that if you installed only a
             base system, you can install all network-related packages
             with pacman -S network and so.
           + Created a new config tool: wificonfig, to configure your
             wireless connection.
           + The KDE menu changed a bit: now most installed non-kde
             applications should apper in the menu, too.
           + Localized Thunderbird and added localized spellcheck support.
           + The gimp-print printer drivers replaced with the foomatic
             ones, wich means we support much more printers now.
           + Packaged the rox desktop environment.
           + New web [1]interface for viewing informations about
           + Now all package has it's own changelog, which can be viewed
             from for example the packages page.
      * Package highlights: More than 150 new packages: windowmaker
        applets, firestarter, pure-ftpd, subversion and more.
      * Updates: As usual, Frugalware cames with the latest version of
        upstream stable releases, including:
           + Linux kernel 2.6.12
           + GCC 3.4.4
           + KDE 3.4.1
