+          The Frugalware Developer Team is pleased to <a 
href="/news/182">announce</a> the immediate availability of Frugalware 1.3, our 
thirteenth stable release.<br />
+          No new features have been added since 1.3rc2, but 94 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>Updated packages: Linux kernel 2.6.35, Xorg server 1.8, GNOME 
2.30, KDE 4.4.5 to name a few major components.</li>
+            <li>For the first time in the history of Frugalware Linux, we're 
offering an official graphical netinstall image, search for the "-gui" suffix 
on the ftp mirrors.</li>
+            <li>This time we've verified that no workaround is needed to 
install this release in VMware and because of this, the relevant note is 
removed from the documentation.</li>
+            <li>The monolithic configuration of XOrg is now split to the <a 
href="";>xorg.conf.d directory</a>. You can 
still use the monolithic config, but the config files in the new directory have 
priority. XOrg now also uses udev to detect your hardware automatically, 
/etc/X11/xorg.conf is no longer generated by default.</li>
+            <li>Updated image libraries: <a 
href="";>libjpeg 8</a> and 
<a href="";>libpng 1.4</a>. 
While adding support for these new libraries, we touched 1500+ packages, doing 
various minor fixes and improvements <a 
 and there</a>.</li>
+          </ul>
+          Please refer to the Frugalware <a 
ChangeLog</a> for more information.<br />
+          Download for i686, x86_64 and ppc: See our <a 
href="";>mirror list</a>. Don't 
forget to check the <a 
of the install images before burning!<br />

what media you need for the installation.<br />
+          If you are upgrading to Haven from our previous stable release 
(Locris), please read the <a 
href="";>upgrade</a> part of our 
documentation.<br />
