   The Frugalware Developer Team is pleased to announce the immediate
   availability of Frugalware 0.4pre2-i686, the second technical preview
   release of 0.4-i686.
   A short and incomplete list of changes since 0.4pre1-i686:
     * New features:
          + Libificated [1]pacman to meet our needs, and the newborn
            [2]pacman 3 has become the default package manager.
          + Network configuration has been redesigned, now we support
            various network profiles, and much more network parameters
            (hardware address, multiple ip addresses on a single
            interface, etc) than before.
          + Created a new, more verbose [3]documentation.
          + Switched to udev as the default hotplug multiplexer.
          + Bugfix: now automounting for usb sticks works fine, not only
            for CDs or DVDs.
          + More than 100 new packages - on client side: wepdecrypt,
            konversation, ltp, gtkpod, firefox extensions, etc.
          + New server side packages: xen (with dom0 and domU kernels),
            darcsweb, rails, perl modules and much more!
     * Behind the scenes:
          + Added package splitting support.
          + Started to work on a PPC port.
     * Updates: As usual, Frugalware comes with the latest version of
       upstream stable releases, including:
          + Linux kernel 2.6.15
          + Modularized Xorg 7.0
          + Apache 2.2.0

   Please refer to the Frugalware [4]ChangeLog for more information.
