We are pleased to introduce GoboLinux 013, the new major release of
GoboLinux, the alternative Linux distribution. This release is the
result of over an year of work on the build infrastructure used by
the distribution. The new Live CD build environment is highly
customizable and package building was overhauled
by using a dynamically-generated sandboxed environment which insulates
the source code and its dependencies during compilation.

These under-the-hood improvements resulted in cleaner builds when
bringing the package set up-to-date: major upgrades include Xorg 7.1,
KDE 3.5.3, Glibc 2.4 and GCC 4.1.1. This release also features a number
of improvements in the management tools, particularly new versions of
Manager, the graphical management console, and Compile, the GoboLinux
package building tool.

Thanks for everybody who helped on testing the beta and rc versions!

Note: apart from a minor changes in initrd (fixing boot for systems
with multiple CD drives), 013 final is the same as 013-rc3. So, if you
have that and it already boots fine in your machine, there is no need
to download it again.

Cheers!
