That doesn't mean anything. The iso brings the name of the year and month in which is released.

Release names are based on time of release, not on time of the included packages' upstream release dates.

Why should the installation iso look better? I like the simple style, it's logical and we don't need i nice gui thing like the ubuntu installer:P. I am also waiting for the new ISO so i can convert my ext3 partitions on my lapyop and reinstall my desktop:)

The installers are available already.  (Both arch-installer and aif support it)  See http://projects.archlinux.org/
For the iso's you'll need to wait a few more days.

You misunderstand me. I'm saying making it look better by updating the date to 2009. I have no problems with the style of the installer.

Re: 2008.12 archboot test iso/img files

Anyone actually working on a new iso or are there just plans? This is in no way a nag and I mean no disrespect to all you awesome developers. However I want to wipe my pc on monday and I would very much like to use ext4 across the board.

edit: It would appear that I forgot to read the news...sorry. I'm on the mailing list. If all else fails I'll use the available alpha isos.
/me scurries away and adds the news to his rss reader...

Yes, the new ISO release is coming very soon. In fact, I'm sure it will be released over the weekend. This is the same reason why I am waiting for the new release, I just want to make absolutely sure everything will be compatible and fresh.

There is some information on the mailing list about the new release.

Re: 2008.12 archboot test iso/img files

Reading through the mailing lists for 2009.01 (I don't know how to post yet), I see that we are going to have 2 cds, a x86-32 and a x86-64.  The isos seem small enough that it seems they could both fit on 1 cd, just like one of the previous cds we had.

That's a good thing imo. The smaller the better! Takes less time to download and burn...

Re: 2008.12 archboot test iso/img files

Why not a single CD with all 32-bit applications (obviously the Core CD would have to include both 32 and 64-bit _packages_, but I mean actual stuff on the CD), and a 32-bit and a 64-bit kernel, which can be chosen between on start, the only benefit of a 64-bit kernel meaning you can chroot into 64-bit systems? That's what SystemRescueCd does.

I personally like small iso's fast download, fast install, and you can use your old usb stick to boot the iso smile

w00t i hope it's get's released this weekend, then i finally can make a complete migrate to ext4.
