              Release Notes: This version comes with a program (for Linux or Windows) to install SystemRescueCd on a USB stick. The standard kernels have been updated to 2.6.32.14. Several bugs were fixed in the pxebootsrv service that provides a PXE boot server for SystemRescueCd out of the box. Two boot options have been added: "nonm" to disable the Network-Manager and "nodhcp" to disable automatic DHCP in PXE boot.

                Release Notes: The framebuffer console was enabled to fix extended VGA modes (booting with "vga=xxx"). Modules were moved to the embedded kernel initramfs to reduce the memory requirement. Lzma compression is now used for the initramfs to save space. The alternative kernels were updated to 2.6.33.2 and standard kernels were updated to 2.6.32.11. The "dostartx" option that starts Xorg automatically and the Xorg auto-configuration script used by "wizard" were fixed. The default isolinux boot screen is now based on a menu. squashfs was updated to version 4.0 with lzma compression.

                  Release Notes: The boot process is faster, thanks to OpenRC and to the reorganization of system services. Version 1.5 is also based on udev, so only the appropriate drivers are loaded, which accelerates the boot process. Parted-2.2 has been patched to fix usability problems (specifically, the ”failed to re-read the partition table” error). This release also fixes usability problems with the intel xorg driver. The standard kernels (rescuecd and rescue64) are now based on a new configuration.

                    Release Notes: The standard and alternative kernels have been upgraded to 2.6.32.9 and 2.6.27.45 respectively. Two boot options that allow booting SystemRescueCd from either NFS or NBD have been added. It allows computers with less than 512 MB to boot from the network since the compresssed root filesystem does not have to fit in memory with NFS and NBD. zfs-fuse 0.6.0 has been added. Parted has been updated to 2.1 (support for devices with sectors > 512 bytes) and fsarchiver-0.6.8 (important fixes).
