What is in This Release?

This release comes with the latest KDE 3.5.6 desktop. It includes a re-written partitioner in the desktop CD installer. Network setup is now easier with knetworkmanager included by default. Our Adept package manager includes several improvements to make it easier to select your software sources, view changes and configure packages graphically. The advanced but easy to use Kexi database manager is now included by default and for your photos we ship with the latest Digikam 0.9.1. Finding other computers and printers on the local network is easier with zeroconf configured by default. There have also been improvements to the Guidance power manager to control your CPU speed.
