            Release Notes: The new extension type "ci" (compressed ISO) was added to myDSL to reduce memory requirements.

                  Release Notes: A new GTK application theme was added, which is a little darker and easier on the eyes than the default. rdesktop was updated. New additions include documentation on TCC, an intelligent man script which knows the difference between a regular app and a busybox app, a net dictionary, and SQLite Book (a Perl/SQLite record keeper). ogg123 and mpg123 were fixed. The install script was enhanced, and can now restore most of the regular applications and libraries which BusyBox has replaced on the live CD. Text links were added to the menu.

                      Release Notes: A new kernel and modules were added, supporting more hardware. busybox is used to save space. Space was saved by having dpkg-restore restore not only package structure, but also related programs. Backup or restore to a specific device (such as a hard drive) was improved. The PPP dial scripts were improved, so manual editing is no longer required. The hard drive install script was improved to pass the fb800x600 screen size. The speed of installation was also improved. The menu was reorganized for easier navigation. The /opt/bootlocal.sh was added to allow the user to specify miscellaneous system startup commands.
