The second alpha builds of CrunchBang Linux 10 “Statler” are available now. The CrunchBang 10 alpha 2 builds were completed on the 24th June 2010 and contain all package updates available at the time from the Debian Squeeze repositories.
Much has changed since the initial alpha builds, in fact, too much has changed to be able to reasonably detail in full. So instead, here, in no particular order, is a short list of the main changes:
The CrunchBang file servers are funded by donations to the project. The file servers are named, Captain Link Hogthrob, Dr. Julius Strangepork & First Mate Piggy. The file servers are all on the OVH network and are all Intel Atom based machines with a 100Mbps connection and a soft bandwidth cap of 2TB a month. A load-balancing download page has been created to accommodate these new servers, please see the CrunchBang Linux 10 "Statler" downloads page.
As always with CrunchBang, this release is not recommended for anyone who requires a stable system. Anyone who uses CrunchBang should be comfortable with occasional or even frequent breakage. Remember, CrunchBang Linux could make your computer go CRUNCH! BANG! :)
