14  <p><B>2006-02-05</B> Mondorescue has been officially referenced by the HP OpenSource Portal:
15  <a href="http://opensource.hp.com/index.php">http://opensource.hp.com/index.php</a> (look in the "Recently released" area)</p>
16  <p><B>2006-02-02</B> In our always increasing set of services :-) I'd like to announce the

19Try rsync rsync.mondorescue.org::</p>
20  <p><B>2006-02-01</B> Things are progressing. I've gathered all the packages that were
21  originally on <a href="http://www.mondorescue.org">http://www.mondorescue.org</a> and also added Mike's SuSE RPMs
22+ all the latest packages I've produced and put them on a new ftp server
23accessible at <a href="ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org">ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org</a>
24</p><p>
25You may have issues to access to it yet, as I've done a DNS refresh this
26night and propagation could not be made everywhere now.

42Feel free to send me (by private mail) packages that you have and that

51I think that it's time to promote our revisions to a newer version, as a
52proof of increased stability, and result of lots of cleanup and
53improvements, even if some small known bugs remain (and other could
54always appear). So here are mindi 1.06 / mondo 2.06 aka Christmas
55Release :-)
56</p><p>
57Now available at ftp://ftp.berlios.de/pub/mondorescue :<br>

75So more distros supported and built.<br>
76I've used them for a restore of a failed server recently (PXE mode) so
77they should be working correctly for most of the cases (including now
78people not using RPMs)
79</p><p>
80I'll off till begining of next year, so I wish you all the best for this
81new year 2006 coming, and hope you'll find mondorescue as useful as
82usual !
