The Frugalware Developer Team is pleased to  announce the immediate availability of Frugalware 1.0pre1, the first technical preview of
the upcoming 1.0 stable release.
A short and incomplete list of changes since 0.9:
+ The firstFrugalwareInstallerFront-End landed in the package repository. Yes, a graphical one! This means currently
you can use it to bootstrap a new Frugalware system from an existing one, but we
promise we'll improve in this area. :-)
+ Initial 'ppc' port. It has been actively tested on Apple boxes: iBook/Power
Macintosh models, but IBM hardware is not yet supported (it may or may not
work). We also paid special attention to make sure common non-x86 problems, such
playing  youtube or  Java applets work where possible.
+ The support for having a 32-bit chroot on x86_64 is now arrived. The key package
is called emul32-tools. If you run this architecture, check out its  documentation !
+ This release should install and run fine on multiple previously unsupported ASUS
Eee PC models, due to the recent installer improvements and the new ath9k
* Package updates:
+ Linux 2.6.27 + security fixes
+ GCC 4.3.2
+ GNOME 2.24.1
+ OpenOffice.org 3.0
+ More than 800 other package updates
+ More than 80 new packages
Please refer to the Frugalware  Anacreon ChangeLog for more information.
