Subject: [ANNOUNCE] T2 @Live 2.2.0-delta "take the power back"
Newsgroups: gmane.comp.t2.devel
Date: Thursday 24th November 2005 08:14:20 UTC (over 12 years ago)
Hello,

We are proud to announce the next revision of the "state of the art"
Live-CD 
implementation based uppon T2: 2.2.0-delta "take the power back".

Since the last release, fixes are:

- hundreds of updates since based uppon T2 trunk:HEAD
- modular X11R7
- GCC 4.0, GLibC-2.4-CVS, Linux-2.6.14
- NPTL instead of Linux Threads

A lot more hardware configurations got added to the "officially supported /

tested" list on the homepage and there are now companies using T2 @Live as 
base for their commercial products ,-)!

The implementation is done as normal "target" withing the T2 version 2.2 
framework. Thus: Anyone is able to easily compile his / her own live-cd for

any T2 support architecture (nearly any supported by Linux) as well as
alter 
the package selection as needed. This is a _major_ feature over stuff like
Knoppix mostly based on vanilla Debian where usually just injected files
are 
defined and remastering is another struggle for itself.

The homepage:

  http://www.t2-project.org/live/

The download location:

  http://gsmp.tfh-berlin.de/ftp/t2/stable/2.2.0-beta/

The next releases will follow a bit less often (that is once a week or so 
instead of daily as over the last weeks):

- graphical installer (finished, just needs to be integrated)
- GNOME and XFCE variant
- PowerPC version - one day SPARC, MIPS, too

- al lot of tweaks and bugfixing based on testing and feedback

sooner than later:

- early userspace "bootsplash" to hide the textual details to
  average users

Thanks to all the people working on T2 - forming it to the most advanced
and 
flexible System Development Environment available.

Yours,
