The Frugalware Developer Team is pleased to [1] announce the immediate availability of Frugalware 0.6pre1, the first technical preview
release of the upcoming 0.6 stable release.
A short and incomplete list of changes since 0.5:

  * New features:
	   + All installed-by-default packages are now built using gcj/ecj, javac is
	     							only provided as an alternate compiler.
	   + Installing from an usb stick is now supported.
	   + Added PHP documentation for 23 languages.

  * Updates:
	   + Linux 2.6.18 with a much improved SATA layer and a few new drivers
	   + GNU C Library 2.5 with support for the new ELF hash table format
	   + Mozilla Firefox 2.0 with improved tabbed browsing and inline spell checking
	   + Xfce 4.4rc1: This fixes all plugin crash problems with the old Xfce 4.2.x
	     													and the new version is much more stable.
	   + KDE 3.5.5 with KHTML improvements, and support for sudo in kdesu
	   + OpenOffice.org 2.0.4 with a latex export filter and encryption support in
	     													the pdf export filter
	   + D-Bus 0.93 with many memleaks and bugs fixed
	   + neon 0.26.1 with internationalization support
	   + Xen 3.0.3 with HVM and XenFB support; Xen kernels upgraded to 2.6.18
	   + db 4.5.20 with Multi-Version Concurrency Control (MVCC) support
	   + Python 2.5 with an interesting mix of language and library improvements
	   + GNOME 2.17.1 with various bugfixes and new features
	   + Binutils 2.17.50.0.6 - this allows us to use the new ELF hash table
	     													format which is now enabled by default in our build system. This
	     will
	     													cause a considerable performance increase in newly built packages.
