Webconverger USB boot testing

Seasons greetings! Apologies for the delayed security release, that is 5.9. I have been enduring a cold and BT 20CN 'professional' broadband which limits me to 3GB of traffic between 9am-6pm for the MONTH in Cornwall, UK! Yes, it's almost 2010! And that also means the feedback email address has been updated to feedback2010@webconverger.com

So what has changed in 5.9 over 5.8?

  • hefty flash security update
  • Bloated GNU grub is dropped on ISO which should mean wider hardware support
  • hetty has been upgraded meaning quicker builds and order turnarounds
  • Unfortunately some bloat crept in (avahi, dbus, xorg-docs) -- will remove them later

Please report any issues that are not in the todo list on the friendly mailing list.

Happy surfing!
