After several delays, the Gentoo Release Engineering team is proud to announce the release of Gentoo Linux 2007.0, code named "Secret Sauce". This release includes a completely rewritten version of the Gentoo Linux Installer on the AMD64 and x86 LiveCD and LiveDVD images. It also includes GNOME 2.16.2, KDE 3.5.5, Xfce 4.4, Mozilla Firefox 220.127.116.11, OpenOffice.org 2.1.0, and the 2.6.19 Linux kernel.
Improvement to the x86/amd64 versions include:
Updated hardware support is among the highlights of the x86 release. Besides the many updated office and productivity packages x86 also brings an update to GLIBC 2.5.
On amd64 you can enjoy updated 32-bit emulation libraries improving support for many closed source applications and browser plugins.
x86 and amd64 also provides both hardened and normal stages in this release. Hardened stages are still using GCC 3.4.6 and GLIBC 2.3.6 but it's possible to upgrade from hardened to normal if needed.
Altogether, a great release! Can't wait to see reviews of this around the web. Grab the CD or DVD @ the Gentoo website downloads section
