Release Notes: With the 4.0.2 release, Lite CD (with educational add-ons and a LiveCD) was added. It's an XFCE4 based distribution for old hardware that still works, if not with all of the latest features. It installs on 64M systems, but 128M or more is recommended.
Release Notes: Quite a few bugfixes in the installer and packages. The most outstanding are that fglrx no longer blocks NVIDIA/Intel 3D support, and there is no more "AMD Unsupported Hardware" overlay on ATI. 4.0 was sort of a "brown paper bag" release, while 4.0.1+ are for real.
