new release candidates: grml ... Posted by Michael Prokop in general at 22:27
Finally it's done - we have new release candidates:
Summarizing the development of more than 7 month of development for the release notes was a pretty tough job. 7 month you might ask? Yes, for the first time we have a longer delay than the usual ~3 month between two stable releases. The reason is simple: we wrote a new build framework named grml-live and reworked the build process therefore. Thanks to grml-live we are able to autobuild grml-ISOs in several different flavours and on different architectures without the need for any further manual interaction. This allows us to provide automatically generated daily snapshots of grml to the public (as you might know already). Now we have the first releases of grml being based on the work of grml-live. Enjoy!

update of daily.grml.org and ... Posted by Michael Prokop in general at 22:49
The webpage of daily.grml.org has been reworked - thanks to the ideas and feedback by Henning Sprang. The page is more clearly arranged now so hopefully you'll find the according ISO even faster. :) If you have any further ideas how to improve the webpage please let me know! Disclaimer: the daily builds are not really up2date right now because we are pretty close to a new stable release now... anyway, I'll provide updated builds soon again...
Some news from the development front: I'm busy working on the new stable releases. Hopefully I'll be able to provide release candidates really soon now and the final stable releases should be available within the next 1-2 weeks as well. The are only a few last release stoppers left...

I just made some benchmarks between ZLIB and LZMA compression at squashfs, thanks to grml-live (which provides a commandline option and config option for switching) that's a trivial task now:
So whereas the build time increases the benefit is a smaller ISO, which is quite important for live systems that want to ship as many useful tools as possible. :-)
