31 May 2011 - New and fresh Cooking 20110531
The Slitaz team is proud to announce the release of a new Cooking version built with our new and fresh packages from cookutils. Cookutils is one of the new generation of tools to build SliTaz packages and provides a Build Bot with a nice web interface that works out-of-the-box on any SliTaz system. These new packages have been built with a new i486 optimized toolchain.
The full boot process has been improved and the first boot configuration is now done through GTK boxes in a X session and the boot time is also faster. This version comes with a new GUI tool for system configuration as well as our new system configuration panel aka TazPanel. TazPanel lets you configure the entire system via a xHTML/CSS web interface (useful for remote control) and it also handles package management and replaces the old GTK box.
Xorg now has dri support, so libdrm, linux-drm as well as linux-agp are part of the core ISO. This adds 1MB to the compressed root filesystem. But we managed to save a lot of space in the core ISO with our new packages and this new Cooking is 30MB! This new cooking also provides better internationalization and Italian support!

29 March 2011 - New Cooking 20110329
The SliTaz team is pleased to announce the release of a new cooking ISO featuring over 2900 packages. All packages have been rebuilt using our new cooking tool, now included in tazwok. It contains Linux Kernel 2.6.37 compiled against glibc 2.13, binutils 2.21 & gcc 4.5.2. The Core LiveCD includes Midori 0.3.3. Tazpkg is now entirely translated to French and we are open to additional translations. Tazwok has been entirely rewritten and it's now possible to recook SliTaz from Scratch using any ISO. This ISO is the first of a release candidate series which leads us to a stable 4.0 release.
A lot of work has been done since our last cooking ISO released in november: more than 2200 changes have been commited to the wok, and several hundreds more to home-built tools. We are proud to announce that the SliTaz community has grown a lot these last months: the last year, many changes was commited than in the previous four. However, quantity doesn't mean quality. We need you to help to test this new ISO and report eventual bugs. If you want to, you are welcome to help fix known problems before 4.0 is released. You can join members of the crew via our IRC, mailing-list, forums or by mailing the packages maintainers. We hope you will enjoy this new release!
