Archlinux 2008.06 "Overlord" has been released

I just realized that Arch Linux's newest install CD was released yesterday.

If you are interested in trying this great GNU/Linux distribution, this is the perfect opportunity for you to do so.

I'll probably download and burn a copy myself just in case I end up needing it at some point. Come to think of it, I might just install it on my sister's computer if she feels that she is comfortable enough with GNU/Linux to move away from Ubuntu.

Changes since the last 'stable' release:

  • 'base' category is always installed
  • Use of UUIDs for persistent device naming
  • Availability of USB disk images alongside traditional ISOs
  • True live Arch installation environment
  • Inclusion of the beginner's guide from the wiki
  • Documentation updates
  • Includes the current stable kernel,
