The Frugalware Developer Team is pleased to [1] 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:

  * Improvements:
	   + 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.

  * 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
