   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 an package synchronization client and daemon (syncpkg
            and syncpkgd) to make updating 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.
          + Splitted OpenOffice, now all language pack and dictionary can
            be separately installed/removed.
          + More than 80 new packages: Xgl (with a [1]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 2.6.15.4
          + Perl 5.8.8
          + Firefox 1.5.0.1
          + Thunderbird 1.5
          + KDE 3.5.1
          + GNOME 2.12.3
