      Release Notes: This release creates a new repository on github. It upgrades glib2 and friends to compile the latest versions of SeaMonkey/Firefox. It upgrades core Gnome libraries and associated programs. It adds gst-ffmpeg for totem plugin support of MP4. New programs include Balsa, Celestia, and Virtualbricks, with the video editors Avidemux, Cinelerra, and Openshot.

        Release Notes: The distribution now tracks the latest LinuxFromScratch and BeyondLinuxFromScratch projects. It includes the base LFS system (version 6.7) and probably 85% of the development BLFS (no KDE, only GNOME). Over 700 GNU projects are used. The build documentation was updated with instructions that more accurately reflect the author's own successful build process. Support for creating bootable USB sticks for the Intel Apple Mac Mini was added. A major bug that prevented the Live CD from booting reliably under emulation or with external USB CDROM drives was fixed.

          Release Notes: This release includes images for booting Linux on a Mac Mini using USB drives only. It supports all native hardware, including Apple Airport Extreme. If you have two 1GB USB sticks and a Mac Mini, follow the brief instructions on the Website to try Linux on your Mac. This procedure was tested on a second-generation Mac Mini. YMMV with iMacs, Macbooks, and Macbook Pros, although the author has had success with the non-unibody Macbook Pro. This release will not install anything, overwrite, or even access the internal hard drive. It is completely housebroken, and safe for testing and use.

            Release Notes: This release sits on top of the stable LFS-6.6 and the development version of BLFS. Highlights include kernel 2.6.32, Xorg-7.5, and Apple wireless support.

            Release Notes: This release supports the Sony VAIO VGN-UX280P. The source has been updated to the latest Linux From Scratch and BLFS releases. The Linux kernel is at 2.6.22.5. X11 was upgraded to Xorg 7.2. Extraneous programs have been removed, and many others upgraded. The build process has been completely overhauled. Later releases will include a generic kernel for non-VAIO x86 hardware. Intel-based Macs are now supported (tested on Mac Mini), though X11 video needs additional configuration.

            Release Notes: The Web site was updated to be more user-friendly. A new hcreate script will build an ISO with a blessed HFS+ filesystem suitable for booting Intel machines with EFI firmware.

            Release Notes: The demo page has been updated with two new videos. A new kernel parameter, "addons", will prompt for a password, which could be used to decrypt data hidden within the structure of the root ext2 filesystem. Instructions are given on how to create and manipulate your own hidden filesystems. Source code is now available through a subversion repository, and building instructions have been updated.

            Release Notes: There is a bugfix to make usrram kernel parm work. This release will correctly load /usr into RAM if "usrram" is passed as a boot option. Subversion has been added.
