4 Announcing GLI ("the installer") 0.5 (by agaffney)
5 --------------------------------------------------
6 http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux.gentoo.installer/594
7 --------------------------------------------------
8 The Gentoo Linux Installer team would like to announce version 0.5[.4] (we've found a few bugs since the initial 0.5 release) of the installer. This release, which is available on the 2007.0 x86 and amd64 LiveCD/DVDs, has a lot of changes from the previous one (so many that it really should have been a new major version, but we haven't even reached 1.0 yet, so it's a bit hard to jump to 2.0).

10 Release BitTorrent seeding (by robbat2)
11 ---------------------------------------
12 http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux.gentoo.devel/48936
13 ---------------------------------------
14 Could the ~80 people that are still seeding the 2006.1 release on BitTorrent please move to seeding the 2007.0 release instead?
15 The 6 torrents below are the most popular (in order), and account for 98% of the BitTorrent traffic since the 2007.0 release yesterday.
16 1. livedvd-i686-installer-2007.0
17 2. livecd-i686-installer-2007.0
18 3. livedvd-amd64-installer-2007.0
19 4. livecd-amd64-installer-2007.0
20 5. install-x86-minimal-2007.0-r1
21 6. install-amd64-minimal-2007.0
22 I will be retiring the 2006.1 torrents on June 1st, until then, they are available at http://torrents.gentoo.org/?category=2006.1
