Hello everyone,

I'd like to announce to the list that there is a new release of Tin Hat
out.  Tin Hat is a fully featured Linux desktop based on Hardened Gentoo
which runs purely in RAM.  It aims to be very secure, stable, and fast.

This release doesn't include any new features, but rather focuses on
stabilizing the extensive changes implemented in the last release which
completely reworked the build scripts: now a new Tin Hat release is built
from a running system rather than from VMWare templates. The entire
process
of syncing upstream using portage, recompiling the kernel if necessary,
preparing a prestine system and building the ISOs is done purely in RAM.

The release also addresses several security issues and bugfixes. Over 30
packages are upgraded, including the following important updates:
hardened-sources-2.6.25-r12, bind-tools-9.4.3_p1, openssl-0.9.8j,
e2fsprogs-libs-1.41.3-r1, and portage-2.1.6.4
