          Release Notes: This release adds .bash_profile for user control of startup programs. Both LiveCD (with restore option) and hard drive installed users will benefit. Improved system architecture and hard-drive install scripts to allow for a more traditional multi-user installation. Each added user's environment is like the LiveCD's damnsmall user. There is an updated Fluxbox,scite in place of nedit (size issue), mformat (needed to take advantage of the restore script use with floppy), a modified install script to work with low RAM systems, lprng/gs/apsfilter for broad printer support, and fixed NTFS read support.

            Release Notes: A local .xinitrc, a save/restore user settings menu option, a boot time "restore" option (type "knoppix restore" at boot), and the mount.app program now recognizes the USB drive. Firebird now runs as the user damnsmall. sqlite has been added. ispell and flwriter have been replaced with Ted-gtk with US English spell check. The removed option to set the frequency didn't work quite right and has been removed. An option to set the DPI has been added.

              Release Notes: This version includes new Xvesa and Xfbdev Xservers from CVS, in which the mouse scroll is better, and there is no need to re-map the mouse buttons any more. A fun addition for this release is TuxNES, and an assortment of public domain games. The Firebird install script is updated to 0.7, and there is a new Fluxbox theme, "Lawn". Also new is Nano-tiny. It is now possible to dynamically load usb-storage only when mounting USB drives.

                Release Notes: Fabian Franz's 'toram' linuxrc routine was added, so the whole system can be put into RAM, which requires only 64M of RAM. The CD player plugin for XMMS was added. The ability to chose language specific keyboard layout was restored (e.g. 'lang=de'), and the default is US English. The Debian 'wireless-tools' package was added. A bug in Xpacman was fixed, and the keys to work with German, French, and English were re-mapped. Other small feature and usability enhancements were made.

                  Release Notes: This release adds parted (a partition tool), rdesktop (an RDP client for Windows NT/2000 Terminal Server), and xpacman (a fun and tiny Pacman game). It updates the Firebird script to 0.6.1, updates lilo, and adds an option to set the frequency for the Xvesa server. There has been a lot of bugfixing and cleanups, fixing some post-install bugs with sudo and swap, cleaning the post-install script, and fixing IRC and screensaver bugs.

                    Release Notes: This version features many patches, the addition of traceroute, fixes for a rendering problem with netcardconfig, and modifications to startx so that it will save selected settings for the next X session.

                      Release Notes: This version adds generic printer support. Fluxbox and most X applications are now running under user instead of root. sudo and Microcom were added. Oneko was added for the kids. The swap partition should now be properly recognized which makes DSL more compatible with low RAM systems. A tabs- and frames-enabled, patched version of Dillo was added. The icons were remapped so that they fit in the smallest resolution setting. The enhance feature is now smarter, so that it will not launch duplicate applications, but will bring bbpager into theme compliance.
