Dear users,

The Lunar team proudly announce the release of Lunar Linux 1.6.5-rc1 codename ‘Mare Ingenii’!

This project is still alive and we don’t intend to change that!

While news and updates on our main site may have been next to nil we assure you that the wheels have been turning behind the scenes. The Lunar team have been busy
keeping the modules up to date. The new ISO is also a proof that we are still in the game. Come on and help us test 1.6.5-rc1 and don’t be afraid to give us suggestions on how to make Lunar even better!

- The Lunar team

New features in 1.6.5

  • Based on kernel and glibc 2.11.2
  • Added support for EXT4 filesystem
  • Added option to change preferred /etc/fstab style; UUID, LABEL or device name
  • Openssh and screen is now part of the LiveCD to allow remote assistance during install

Give us feedback through the bugtracker. You can also inform us directly on IRC and via our mailing lists, though the bug tracker is preferred.
