Subject: [rock-linux] [ANNOUNCE] ROCK Linux - v2.0.0-rc4 (Not The NOC)

here comes the official announcement of the 2.0.0-rc4 (Not The NOC)

Binary images for x86 (generic, desktop) and PowerPC (desktop) will be
online, soon.


  This is a "Release Candidate" release. Although we worked hard to
  make the 2.0 series stable (and IMHO it is the most stable series we
  ever experienced) we cannot test all hardware combinations and still
  have some bugs inside the Bug tracker.

  There is still some work left before the stable ROCK Linux 2.0
  release scheduled for Q1 2003!

  Desktop binaries are be available for x86 - PPC incl. rs6k support
  will follow soon.


  After the 18C3 (18th Chaos Communication Congress) the ROCK Linux
  developers agreed on a major redesign of many parts of the ROCK
  Linux build system. With this changes modifying many aspects of the
  build process is possible for a target compilation.

  Uniting the ROCK Linux and Desktop ROCK Linux package database has
  the advantages of: eliminating waste of developer time due to
  package and security updates needed to be performed in both trees,
  eliminating waste of developer time due to creating the same basic
  technology for new gcc/glibc environments, keeping the
  architecture-ports in sync and fixing more bugs because more eyes
  read the source. In one sentence: We will be able to archive more in
  shorter time ;-)
