New GoboLinux port for ARM CPUsIt's with great pleasure that we announce GoboLinux 003 for ARM CPUs. This is the first ARM release compiled entirely with our Bootstrap tool, which uses the infrastructure offered by ChrootCompile. The full announcement can be found here. Please consider subscribing to the GoboLinux-ARM mailing list to get more information on this port.
New releases of GoboLinux toolsAnd a new rush of updates came this week, leading us to the second release of Bootstrap and ChrootCompile and to a new version of the Compile and Scripts packages -- the latter being already linked against Glibc 2.4 this time.
New versions for Scripts, Compile and Manager
New versions for Scripts (2.6.0), Compile (1.8.0) and Manager (1.1.3) were just released. The main highlights are the improvement of the scripts option parser, and introduction of support for recipes and packages revisions. Our recipe store is going to be updated really soon to use this new scheme, so, go ahead and update those tools at your system.
Note to whom is still using Glibc 2.3.2: This package for Scripts is the last one being linked against Glibc 2.3.2. If your system is based on GoboLinux 012 (or older) and you haven't updated your Glibc yet, please do it: just install this latest version of Scripts ('InstallPackage Scripts') and run 'InstallPackage Glibc' afterwards.
GoboLinux.org in French!

GoboLinux.org in Hungarian!
It's always a happy time when we announce a new language available in gobolinux.org! Thanks to the contributions of Zoltán Viola, we now feature Hungarian in the language selection.
There is also a new forum for Hungarian users: everyone is welcome!
We are pleased to introduce GoboLinux 013, the new major release of GoboLinux, the alternative Linux distribution. This release is the result of over an year of work on the build infrastructure used by the distribution. The new Live CD build environment is highly customizable and package building was overhauled by using a dynamically-generated sandboxed environment which insulates the source code and its dependencies during compilation.
These under-the-hood improvements resulted in cleaner builds when bringing the package set up-to-date: major upgrades include Xorg 7.1, KDE 3.5.3, Glibc 2.4 and GCC 4.1.1. This release also features a number of improvements in the management tools, particularly new versions of Manager, the graphical management console, and Compile, the GoboLinux package building tool.
