+            The Frugalware Developer Team is pleased to <a 
href="/news/163">announce</a> the immediate availability of Frugalware 1.2, our 
twelfth stable release.<br />
+            No new features have been added since 1.2rc2, but 62 changes have 
been made to fix minor bugs. If you didn't follow the changes during the pre/rc 
releases, here are the most important changes since 1.1 in no particular 
order:<br />
+            <ul>
+                <li>Up to date packages: Linux kernel, GNU C library 
2.11.1, Xorg 7.5, GNOME 2.28, KDE 4.3.5 to name a few major components.</li>
+                                                               <li>KMS (Kernel 
Mode-Setting) is now enabled by default for Intel and Radeon cards.</li>
+                <li>PAM (Pluggable Authentication Modules) is now part of the 
base system.</li>
+                <li>Introduced devtmpfs: you can now exclude /dev from 
backups, along with /proc and /sys.</li>
+                                                               <li>Removed 
several large games from the install images (CD/DVD) which means one less DVD 
or 4 less CDs.</li>
+                                                               <li>We finally 
upgraded our KDE (and related) packages to the 4.x branch. The work started 
back in April 2009 and now we thought it's a good move to merge that testing 
+                                                               <li>This 
release comes with Xorg 7.5, see the <a 
href="";>upstream list 
of new features</a>.</li>
+                                                               <li>We've 
updated our bluez userspace stack to the 4.x branch, which allowed us to 
improve both GNOME and KDE bluetooth support.</li>
+            </ul>
+            Please refer to the Frugalware <a 
 ChangeLog</a> for more information.<br />
