Latest Release: 21 February 2010 - New Cooking 20100221
Screenshot: http://www.slitaz.org/pics/website/screenpresentation.png SliTaz contributors are proud to announce a new Cooking version of the LiveCD. This is the last Cooking RC before 3.0 release. The core ISO image is at 27 MB and comes with many changes and improvments. This Cooking uses Xorg as X server instead of Xvesa and provides full UTF-8 support. Within a clean desktop environment, it also provides many applications for daily usage and common tasks. Netsurf replaces firefox as a default web browser. Nevertheless, a Firefox flavor at 29 Mb with sound and wifi support can also be downloaded from official mirrors. On the updates and improvements side: tazpkg is faster; boot-scripts are updated and home-made toolboxes are improved. Wifibox uses awk for better network scanning. WPA support in the boot scripts have been improved. Boot time is logged for performance measuring. The SliTaz installer will now try to use files from an USB device if no cdrom is found, allow you to create a default user account, set a root password and use a separate /home partition. And finally, LiveCD customization is now much easier. User just have to: boot, modify and use writefs via Tazlito graphical interface or from the command line to generate their own customized CD. As usual, you candownloadthese new flavors from one of the official mirrors of the project and provide feedback on the SliTaz forum.
