Gentoox: New Releases!

,----[ Quote ]
| Well, it's been about 21 months, but here they are... the "You're still doing
| this?!" releases. I don't really know if there's any demand for Gentoox
| anymore, but I figured I'd put these out there just in case people do still
| use it.
|
| Home edition has been upgraded to v7.0, Pro to v5.0, Resctoox to v6.0 and
| Sparkle to v4.0. You can grab the downloads from the Downloads section.

Parted Magic 3.5

,----[ Quote ]
| This release of Parted Magic includes many new features and updated programs.
| The first thing you might notice is the dramatic increase in size. We are now
| using a squashfs image instead of a 7zip archive. This once again allows for
| a "live" option for older computers. Parted Magic doesn't use any additional
| RAM with the default boot option, the compression was just decreased. With
| the Linux 2.6.28 kernel comes the first stable ext4 file system release. We
| are using a highly tested SVN version of GParted to give you full control of
| your ext4 partitions. This includes all features for ext file systems found
| in previous releases. Jason Vasquez has vastly improved support of wireless
| devices. We hope you have a better experience with your wireless networking.
| Last but not leased we have added some new programs. gsmartcontrol-0.8.3,
| xfce4-screenshooter-1.5.0, fsarchiver-0.3.5, and squashfs-3.4 are now part of
| the Parted Magic program list.
