        Release Notes: This release should be considered a release candidate for 1.0. The uncompressed ISO image has been reduced in size to only about 18 MByte, with a lot of free space on the CD-cards available for upgrades. The scripts and the library directory have been cleaned and the various file systems have been changed. Ext2 is now used for the initrd image and cramfs is used for the images to allow them to be mounted runtime, reducing RAM usage and improving general performance. Many bugfixes were made to the net libraries, so ping and ftp now work.
