A fix for the keyboard map handling problem present in 0.6.
Release Notes: Based on OpenSolaris Build 60, this release adds Full Modular Xorg 7.2 and Compiz 0.5.0 3D Manager (needs an Nvidia display card). It also includes GNU Parted and GParted GUI, Ksh93, and a USB dump utility. It updates various bundled software and adds Ktorrent, Midnight Commander, and Pkgbuild. 3000 OpenSolaris man pages are included, and it creates pseudo devices for logical partitions with experimental Linux swap detection. The OpenSolaris iSCSI initiator software is also included.
Release Notes: This is the first release of the BeleniX LiveDVD (992MB). It is essentially 0.5.1 with the addition of JDK 1.6, OpenOffice 2.1, Netbeans 5.5 with Visual Web Pack, C/C++ Pack, Profiler and Glassfish AppServer 9, all the OpenSolaris Developer and Administration documents available from the OpenSolaris Documentation Community, and Desktop shortcuts for all these.
Release Notes: This release bundles the Nvidia 3D accelerated driver. This will enable nice stuff like compositing effects in Xfce (transparency and shadows). It was updated to use OpenSolaris build 52. This build features the addition of HAL and System D-BUS daemon and iSCSI support for ZFS. An Xorg configuration utility, based on Perl-Curses, was added. Firefox was updated to 2.0 and Thunderbird was updated to 184.108.40.206. Koffice was updated to 1.6.0. The bug that used to cause a boot-up error after harddisk install was fixed. Several other bugs like the KDE screen lock issue were fixed.
Release Notes: The significant feature of this release is support for read-only mounting and accessing both Ext2FS and NTFS partitions on either primary or logical partitions. The base OS has been updated to a recent pre-build48 snapshot of OpenSolaris. The utilities from NTFSprogs provide read-write access to NTFS. A small GUI written in Tcl/Tk is available to access and mount hard disk partitions at the click of a mouse. XFce has been upgraded to 4.4 Beta2. Firefox has been updated. There are installer enhancements.
Release Notes: This is the first release of the ISO Remastering Tookit for BeleniX. It allows one to create customized LiveCDs based on BeleniX. The HOWTO describes the process in detail.
Release Notes: The significant feature of this release is the development of an I/O scheduler for the HSFS module in OpenSolaris. The I/O scheduler enhances CD-ROM read performance by using I/O reordering with the CLOOK algorithm, I/O coalescing, and semi-asynchronous read-ahead that benefits sequential read. This HSFS enhancement reduces live CD boot time by up to 24 seconds and improves general CD-ROM performance by up to 25%. It was updated to a recent OpenSolaris source snapshot (20060626) that contains many fixes and improvements. Drivers and device support were updated.
