31 Dec 2008 - Cooking 20081231 - Wifi and NTFS support
The SliTaz project is proud to announce a new Cooking version of the LiveCD. It allows you to utilize and test the work done in recent months, it contains many new features, bug fixes and several updates. The distribution now includes a tiny control center, easily managed WiFi via Netbox and tazndis, a lighter version of ndiswrapper to use non-free Windows network card drivers. Perl is now on the cdrom (with Lua removed). WiFi support is also accompanied by support for NTFS partitions, so mplayer had to be dropped from the default packages that make up the heart of the LiveCD. The Tazpkg manager has been greatly improved, it allows the preservation of configuration files, software to be updated according to the construction (build) date on the server, log files to be kept when the packages are actioned, and several fixes have been applied. Also improved are the boot scripts, and the LiveCD tool (Tazlito) is now more coherent. The Cooking repository now contains more than 1100 packages thanks to the SliTaz developers. You can download this new version from one of the official mirrors of the project.

This new Cooking takes an extra 3 Mb so we can provide: a multimedia player with MPlayer, a notes manager with Notecase, a new version of Tazpkg package manager with md5sum support, XFS filesystem support built into the Kernel, a 'man' command and a few updates.
