The second release candidate of Android X86 4.4 is available

Key Features
The 4.4-RC2 release is based on the Android 4.4.2 (KitKat-MR1 release) with a lot of x86 specified code to let the system runs smoothly on x86 platforms, especially for netbooks or tablets. Except the features and bugfixes since 4.4-RC1, there are more features include

Update to stable kernel 3.10.40 with more bugfixes.
Automatically mount ntfs/exfat/ext4 in the external storages (usbdisk/sdcard).
Enhance the sensors support including Intel sensor-hub and Pegatron Lucid Tablet Accelerometer.
Add launcher and file manager from CyanogenMod.
Add 5-point touch calibration app from 0xdroid.
Improve suspend and resume functions.
Add rtl8723au wifi driver.

Released File
We tried to create a universal image for most x86 platforms for the kitkat-x86 release. The plan is still in an experimental stage. Please report bugs to the android-x86 forum with detailed specs of your machine and error logs.

The iso file is hybrid format. That means you can dump the iso into a usb drive and get a bootable usb stick, like
$ dd if=android-x86-4.4-RC2.iso of=/dev/sdX

where /dev/sdX is the device name of your usb drive.

Known issues

Suspend and resume may not work on some systems.
The installer can't format ext3 filesystem.
