Lycoris Desktop/LX Build 71 Beta has been released

Build 71 is built with our new daily build system, so all apps in the source tree are recompiled for each build. this has the effects of producing a more stable build that is easier to test and pinpoint changes, at the expense of longer download times for update wizard updates - you will have to download each update for each new build, even if there were no source code changes. we're looking at ways around that, such as an rsync updater. probably not for update 3 tho.

Changes are too numerous to mention, and the changelog portion of the build process isn't working yet. so here are the highlights:

kernel 2.4.21-pre6
xfree86 4.3.0
new splash screen
little installer fixes - now installs on via miniboards, as well as over USB cdroms

Known issues:

Upgrades seem to have problems with raster fonts in X - clean installs don't seem to have this issue

The wireless pc card config format has changed - you will need to reconfigure your [wlan-ng] wireless card


Only the first CD is necessary for the installation

Download CD 1 (binary)
Download CD 2 (sources)
Download CD 3 (devtools)
