Release Notes: The install and rescue medium snapshot contains arch-install-scripts 9 with an improved fstab generator, Linux 3.6.8, systemd 196, and updates to core packages.
Release Notes: This release has an update to the Arch installation media, as the last release (2010.05) is not only quite outdated, but now yields broken installations if you do a netinstall (because the old installer is not aware of the changed kernel/initramfs filename in the new Linux 3.0 packages).
Release Notes: This is a rolling CD image release built from a current snapshot of [core], which includes kernel 220.127.116.11-1, udev 141-5, and pacman 3.3.0-3. It includes usage of the new AIF installer, which brings a better disk editor with support for dm_crypt and lvm setups, support for automated installations using configuration files (which deprecates quickinst), a framework to build your own installation procedures, enhanced date/time setting with NTP support, refactored grub installation routines, and usability improvements. FTP images were renamed to netinstall to avoid confusion.
Release Notes: Updated packages. Minor bugs in the installer have been fixed. Hardware auto-detection has been improved.
Release Notes: MD5 password support, PAM support, and a new drop-in /etc/conf.d daemon config area have been added. There are two stock kernels now (ide and scsi), and there is LVM support in the initscripts. The installer has also been improved: it has the option to build a kernel from source, better package selection, grub support (now default), and a better package install screen. A ton of package updates were also made.
Release Notes: NFS mounts were added to the init scripts. The install script was improved. The install CD layout was modified to run from an initrd. The rc.d scripts were modified to kill with .pid files or pidof. rc.sysinit now handles UTC times (user patch). Module depenencies are only updated if required. All packages were rebuilt with gcc 3.2. pacman now supports multiple servers and respositories.
Release Notes: An interactive installer cabable of CD- or FTP-based installs, the pacsync utility for upgrading your system automatically, more packages (latest stable versions), a stock kernel package, an improved package manager, and root/boot disk images for install and rescue.
