The Frugalware Developer Team is pleased to [1] announce the immediate availability of Frugalware 0.9pre1, the first technical preview of
the upcoming 0.9 stable release.
A short and incomplete list of changes since 0.8:

  * Improvements:
	   + The network configuration utility now lists card details next to interface
	     names, in case you would now know what is the interface name for your cards.
	   + The USB installer is now a plain image, you can copy it to your USB stick under
	     any operating system (you needed a running Linux system to install the previous
	     version).
	   + Changed the CHOST variable to $arch-frugalware-linux from a mix of
	     $arch-pc-linux-gnu / $arch-unknown-linux, which generally causes more
	     consistency and helps reporting bugs for upstream developers.
	   + Improved security and general user support. We work together with other Linux
	     vendors to provide better security support, and now our forums are [2] mirrored on a mailing list, so more developers can help you.
	   + More than 150 other minor features / bugs have been implemented / fixed
	     resulting in more than 2400 changes since the last release.

  * Package updates:
	   + Linux 2.6.25 + security fixes
	   + GCC 4.3.0
	   + GNOME 2.22
	   + More than 900 other package updates

  * New packages:
	   + About 40 new Java library
	   + Several new Drupal modules
	   + Many new octave modules.
	   + More than 150 other new packages

Please refer to the Frugalware [3] Testing ChangeLog for more information.
We now have a [4] feature schedule for new functionalities we plan to implement before we release Solaria as
stable.
