The Frugalware Developer Team is pleased to [1] announce the immediate availability of Frugalware 1.4rc2, the second candidate of the
upcoming 1.4 stable release.Here are some of the major improvements, fixes and updates since 1.4rc1:

  * Package updates:
	   + Linux 2.6.37 + fixes
	   + KDE SC 4.5
	   + Drupal 7 obsoletes Drupal 5. If a drupal-5 package has its own drupal-6
	     counterpart (eg. drupal-cck),
	             then the drupal-6 one (drupal6-cck) replaces the old one automatically.
	     If a drupal-5 package DOES NOT
	             have its own drupal6 counterpart, then the drupal6 package replaces it -
	     sorry for the inconvenience,
	             those drupal-5 bastards are not even supported by upstream.
	   + systemd v16 - and 5 more packages now support systemd
	                 using native unit files

  * Fixes:
	   + The CD/DVD installer can perform fully offline installation again.
	   + Various user interface fixes (missing icons in desktop
	                 files, etc.)
	   + Missing koffice localization packages are back (they were missing since the
	     integration of KDE4).
