Archie 0.4.3

after a very long pause, 0.4.3 is finally released. many thanks to iphitus for contributing his time and efforts to this release, and to the great Archie community for constantly pushing the project forward smile

no public iso is released atm to spare us from bw consumption.

main changes (imho) on 0.4.3 are the multi-user support (vs root) and shfs.

I don't get it... what is a release if we can't download it?  Is there a torrent?

Re: Archie 0.4.3

no torrent either.

the sub-versions of archie releases only releases the archie-scripts and repository packages so users can create their own archie iso using the latest scripts. the Archie iso will be released on major versions (0.x) releases only due to bw limitations, unless someone is willing to host it smile

Re: Archie 0.4.3

Have you talked to the AL devs about hosting it? That way it could get propagated to the download mirrors too, maybe.

Maybe not yet if you're still working out bugs, but when you hit prime time... :-D

Re: Archie 0.4.3

actually i kinda prefer not publicizing the testings version iso to save us from spreading an undetected bug as mostly only my own debugging usually isnt enough.

hopefully 0.4.4 should come out shortly as 0.4.3 bug fixes, and 0.5 to follow with no new functionalities added but maybe new splash image (our gifted artist Shadowhand is working on it) and hd-install (by the great contributor iphitus). 0.5 will be hosted on Arch and mirrors to satisfy distrowatch users wink

Great!
Currently I am too busy with some other work to be able to compile the iso, so I will wait until 0.5 assuming it will be released soon.
