BLAG30002 (Johannesburg) has been released -- Now 15.2% improved!
BLAG Linux and GNU is a 100% Free Software distribution.
BLAG is a single-cd distro with everything desktop users "expect" from a desktop, plus a collection of nice server apps.
BLAG30002 is based on Fedora Core 3 plus updates, adds apps from Dag, Freshrpms, NewRPMS, and includes custom packages.
BLAG30002 is the latest update to the BLAG30k series, using the last updates from Fedora before moving to the Fedora Legacy project.
New CD packages include kiax (VoIP softphone), netcat and xvid4conf.
Updates include a new kernel, xorg, firefox, glibc, openssh, thunderbird, inkscape, scribus, gaim, xchat, httpd (apache), php, cups, vim, zlib, icecast, blackbox, bluefish, gnupg, gtkpod, openssl, perl, php, spamassassin, bittorrent, graveman, kismet, xine, kino, and MuSE.
Overall, 130 packages were updated on the CD.
Alphas of BLAG based on FC4 are available, but 30002 is the recommended release. The next stable series will be based on Fedora Core 5 (BLAG50k). Development has started based on FC5-test2, but no ISOs are available yet. Expect 50k alpha ISOs "soon". :)
