We are proud to announce the first release candidate of the upcoming version 2011.12, code-named "Knecht Rootrecht"!
For detailed information about the changes between 2011.05 and 2011.12 have a look at the official release announcement .
This release brings a downsizing and cleanup: one flavour, two architectures. The new, smaller flavour has a 350MB ISO size target, while still delivering over 1.1GB of open source software relevant for system administrators!
Give it a try and download grml 2011.12-rc and report back to us.
Please test the ISOs and everything you usually use and report back, so we can complete the stable release soon. If no major problems come up, the next iteration will be the stable release, which is scheduled for end of December.

Oh, no, where is Awesome WM? I need it, bring it back please!

Sorry we shifted our focus. Grml is no longer (it never was) a Desktop Live CD. The new focus is Installation&Recovery. Therefore we only ship a minimal viable X environment without different kind of wm's. Just one. But we added some awesome related shortcuts like changing workspace with meta4+number instead of the old way

But Awesome WM is extremely useful for rescue and maintenance of systems to monitor multiple windows in tiled mode at a time, AWM also is very light and practical. But hey, it's your decision after all. Thank you for responding quickly, and excuse my bad English language skills, my native language is Latin Spanish, I'm Argentinian. Adiou grml ...
