    Release Notes: A lot of features were added, such as SELinux, NPTL threads, udev, and more 2.6-kernel improvements. The installer is now capable of installing and initializing software RAID. New packages are wipe (secure data deletion), foremost (arbitrary data recovery tool), lftp (popular request), a full vim, and ethtool and dmidecode (for network and hardware diagnostics). The installer allows you to install pre-compiled kernels suitable for most systems.

      Release Notes: This release has several feature enhancements over rc1 and rc2. The most noticeable is the Linux software RAID tool that allows you to install Lunar on software RAID easily. Precompiled SELINUX enhanced kernels can now be installed, and the server-targeted kernels should have better I/O performance. The installer now uses normal console logins and fully enabled shells.

        Release Notes: This release backs up all packages to the installed system for recovery purposes. Dmidecode was added to aid hardware discovery. Ethtool was added. The grsecurity kernels are now actually correctly built. A few popular LSI/IBM/Dell RAID drivers are now supported through modules (megaraid, mptspi, others). The precompiled server-targeted kernels were heavily optimized for throughput performance, greatly increasing PCI offload. One nasty hard drive selection bug was fixed.

          Release Notes: The first separate i386 (available separately) and i686 optimized release. There are many usability fixes in the installer procedure. You can now administrate user accounts during installation, and the installer has many fixes and checks for better selecting locale, font, keymaps etc. This version fixes a few bugs with missing files in /etc/, and adds support for displaying normal device names (/dev/sda, /dev/hda3, etc.) in the entire installer. The package list has been modified a bit and now includes wireless_tools, and lard as a logging daemon.

            Release Notes: This release candidate removes many of the rough edges from the installer. All device names now use the classic namespace instead of devfsd names. The ISO-9660 image also includes some missing vital system files and replaces BitchX and lynx with irssi and links, saving some space while adding functionality. A testing version for i386, i486, and i586 is now also available.

              Release Notes: This ISO marks a radical change in the development of lunar install ISOs and should be far easier and faster to install for everyone. The first 1.5.0 release is an i686 optimized ISO. The most important new features are a fast installer, precompiled all-purpose kernels, and seamless lilo and grub installations into the MBR. A typical 686 installation can be done in less than 10 minutes. A screenshot slideshow is now available.

                Release Notes: This ISO is rebuilt from the stable 1.4.0 ISO and contains development code. The installation handler received some minor fixes. The kernel is 2.6.7 (-mm is available). The glibc is a CVS snapshot version and gcc is at 3.4.1.

                  Release Notes: This release adds linux-2.4.25 kernels, gcc-3.3.3 as the default compiler, ncurses-5.4, perl-5.8.3, gettext-0.14.1, openssh-3.8p1, coreutils-5.2.0, an updated lfirsttime.8, curl-7.11.0, and more. No xdelta is available from the 1.3.3 ISO, as the xdelta would be around 90 megabytes, while the iso.bz2 file is only 114 megabytes.
