Version 0.2 of Arch Linux

Release Notes: An interactive installer cabable of CD- or FTP-based installs, the pacsync utility for upgrading your system automatically, more packages (latest stable versions), a stock kernel package, an improved package manager, and root/boot disk images for install and rescue.

Other releases

Release Notes: The install and rescue medium snapshot contains arch-install-scripts 9 with an improved fstab generator, Linux 3.6.8, systemd 196, and updates to core packages.

Release Notes: This release has an update to the Arch installation media, as the last release (2010.05) is not only quite outdated, but now yields broken installations if you do a netinstall (because the old installer is not aware of the changed kernel/initramfs filename in the new Linux 3.0 packages).

Release Notes: This is a rolling CD image release built from a current snapshot of [core], which includes kernel, udev 141-5, and pacman 3.3.0-3. It includes usage of the new AIF installer, which brings a better disk editor with support for dm_crypt and lvm setups, support for automated installations using configuration files (which deprecates quickinst), a framework to build your own installation procedures, enhanced date/time setting with NTP support, refactored grub installation routines, and usability improvements. FTP images were renamed to netinstall to avoid confusion.

Release Notes: Updated packages. Minor bugs in the installer have been fixed. Hardware auto-detection has been improved.
