              Release Notes: Changes in this release include mouse configuration persistence via .mouse_config, improved rdesktop with added color depth, ALSA sound auto-configuration improvements via a conflicting audio module, automated start of rcfirewall upon boot when rcfirewall.unc is in the mydsl search path at boot, and auto-start of gtk2 when the gtk2 extension is in the mydsl search path at boot. Non-boot SCSI modues were removed but can be autoloaded when scsi.unc is in the mydsl search path. A legacy option was added to the lowram boot image label. A lowram check was added to .xinitrc, which prevents Dillo and Torsmo from starting.

A new cron implementation was added, with a new boot option "cron" and a toggle from the control panel. The "checkfs" boot option was added.

MyDSL was updated to support direct downloading.
