The Frugalware Developer Team is pleased to  announce the immediate availability of Frugalware 1.0pre2, the second technical preview
of the upcoming 1.0 stable release.
A short and incomplete list of changes since 1.0pre1:
+ Setup: support for having /boot on a RAID1 device, improved support for
detecting network card names.
+ Serial ports are now owned by the 'dialout' (instead of 'uucp') group, as a
consensus with other distributions.
+ For virtualbox users who had to download the whole (~10MB) package again and
again after each kernel update - it's a good news that now the kernel module is
a separate package to stop wasting bandwidth and time.
+ For pidgin users, an alternative MSN support has been provided in case the
default one have problems, the package is called 'msn-pecan'.
* Package updates:
+ Mono 2.0.1
+ Python 2.6.1
+ GNOME 2.24.2
+ More than 800 other package updates
+ More than 100 new packages
