    Release Notes: The mount tool for "after boot" pendrive detection and support is improved. Reported issues with the mount tool have been fixed (sort order and missing devices). Incomplete Lua5.1 conversions of dslMirrorSel.lua and icontool.lua have been fixed. .jwmrc has been updated for recent menu changes. The hard drive install has been updated for consistent fstab for CD- ROM and floppy. The hard drive install uses lilo to partition instead of MBR. Frugal lilo has been updated: the hda requirement has been dropped, and lilo is used to partition. There is a new Envane theme.

        Release Notes: 54 Lua and Lua/Fltk programs were converted to Lua 5.1.1 and Fltk 1.1 via the MurgaLua interface. The MyDSL Icon can be right-clicked to easily access UCItool. Antiword fonts were improved. Color escape codes were changed to echo commands. The TMPDIR environment variable was added. The original Lua/Fltk was replaced with flua. A license section was added to the "Getting Started" document. Code regarding the desktop and icons was cleaned up. stats.lua was updated to read version information from a text file. Unionfs was made the default boot, but the "legacy" option can be used to skip it.

                  Release Notes: The distribution now scans for a directory named mydsl and automatically loads extensions. When natively booted, the QEMU virtual hard disk will now be recognized. QEMU was upgraded to version 0.8. A new background image (Saturn) was provided to match the current theme. A new check and prompt was provided to save the APSFILTER printer and wireless setup. MyDSL is now a separate menu. A new prompt is displayed when the keyboard is changed while running X. New USB pen drive installs now support 'toram'. Faster dsl-embedded loading was achieved on Windows. A new theme and XMMS skin was included.

                    Release Notes: New auto mydsl: an auto scan for a directory named mydsl will automatically load extensions. DSL natively booted can now recognize the Qemu virtual hard disk. This allows for shared backup. Qemu has been upgraded to 0.8 for both Windows and Linux. There is a new background image (Saturn) to match the current theme. Duplicate saves of wireless and printer are stopped. The boot options frugal and toram, when used together, would try to remount /dev/shm; this has been fixed. .xinitrc has been updated with another correction for better German keyboard support.
