This release addresses many important updates from upstream, particularly:

  • hardened-sources-2.6.28-r7
  • openssl-0.9.8k
  • openssh-5.2_p1-r1
  • glibc-2.8_p20080602-r1
  • gnupg-2.0.10
  • gnome-2.24.1

Approximately 130 other packages were also upgraded. The full lists can be seen here: amd64 and i686.

Password hashing was switched form MD5 to SHA512 with the new glibc.

The build system now allows the option of removing some documentation, thus reducing the size of the ISOs by about 100MB. We now distribute a full and slimmed down image for both i686 and amd64 architectures.

New themes for GDM and the Desktop were introduced.
