17<p><B>2006-03-20 </B>Mondo 2.0.7 / Mindi 1.0.7 are out</p>
18<p>
19I'm happy to announce the availability of the latest and greatest
20version of mondo 2.0.7 / mindi 1.0.7. Version numbers have changed of
21format to be more in line with what is done generally (x.y.z)
22</p>
23<p>
24Now available at ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org :

39Other distributions will follow asap (should be able to produce soon
40redhat 7.3, fedora core 4, and only after rhel3/4 and sles9) due to the
41change in the virtual machines I have to do (now using qemu + more tools
42to generate RPMs)
43</p>
44
45<p>
46The focus on this version has been more around the new website and
47documentation, and a bit less on code. So some persistant bugs are still
48not corrected (some dvd burning issues and dm/lvm2 support mainly) and
49will be hopefully in 2.0.8.

110accessible at <a href="ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org">ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org</a>

143I think that it's time to promote our revisions to a newer version, as a
144proof of increased stability, and result of lots of cleanup and
145improvements, even if some small known bugs remain (and other could
146always appear). So here are mindi 1.06 / mondo 2.06 aka Christmas
147Release :-)

167So more distros supported and built.<br>
168I've used them for a restore of a failed server recently (PXE mode) so
169they should be working correctly for most of the cases (including now
170people not using RPMs)
171</p><p>
172I'll off till begining of next year, so I wish you all the best for this
173new year 2006 coming, and hope you'll find mondorescue as useful as
174usual !
