        Release Notes: This releases features more extensive hardware and firmware support. Experimental (U)EFI booting support has been added. Most of the filesystem is now read-only.

            Release Notes: Secure and anonymous email-like communication was implemented. XChat, Pidgin, FBReader, OpenSSH client, and H.264 video / Speex audio encoding were added. Linux kernel 2.6.37 with SquashFS LZMA is used. Startup and shutdown were made faster using custom initramfs and parallel OpenRC. Haveged serves as a reliable entropy source, and NTP is disabled in favor of exclusive HTP over Tor. Kexec-based boot wipes RAM, even when triggered by boot media removal. KMS- and VESA-dependent boots have been separated, fixing video card issues. The X server locks the screen when a laptop's lid is closed, with improved lock robustness.

              Release Notes: Installation was simplified in Linux and in Windows. A script was added for stripped-down execution in QEMU. A virtual resizable encrypted partition was added. A special firewall-bypassing browser was added (for registration in Wi-Fi HotSpots). MAC address is automatically changed for wireless interfaces. Energy saving is done with Laptop Mode Tools. Many more changes and improvements were made.
