The Frugalware Developer Team is pleased to [1] announce the immediate availability of Frugalware 0.5, our fifth stable release.
A short and incomplete list of changes since 0.5rc2:

  * Linux 2.6.17.11
  * We are proud to be one of the first distributions that ship the stable GNOME
    2.16
  * 20 new packages
If you did't follow the changes during the pre/rc releases, here are the most
important changes since 0.4:

  * Up-to-date packages: GNU C Library 2.4, GCC 4.1.1, KDE 3.5.4, XOrg 7.1,
    OpenOffice.org 2.0.3 (a native version for x86_64 users, too)
  * Security support: as of Frugalware-0.5, security support is provided until the
    release of the stable Frugalware-0.6. The -stable updates are only security
    fixes and bugfixes, no new features are added.
  * Created a new tool called 'setup' to collect the available configuration tools.
  * Localized the package manager (French, German and Hungarian translations are
    available)
  * Switched from bootsplash to splashy, so that the splash can be used with any
    custom vanilla kernel, too.
  * Installer improvements: Added wireless support, support for detecting other
    distributions and other operating systems, utf8-specific updates, all packages
    are available on CDs.
  * fw-xgl-control: Easily enables/disables Xgl on your system with one simple
    command.
  * fwmirror: A new tool to help mirroring Frugalware.
Please refer to the Frugalware [2] 0.5 ChangeLog for more information.

users to be able to get Frugalware quickly, use the [3] CD or [4] DVD torrents.
