     1<p><B>2006-05-31 </B>Mondo 2.0.8 / Mindi 1.0.8 available</p>
     3I'm happy to announce the availability of a newest version of
     4mondo 2.0.8-1 / mindi 1.0.8-1. Enjoy it !
     8Now available at <a href=""></a>
     39<p>As usual src.rpm packages are also available in the same directory. Also a new mondo-doc package is produced for most distributions containing all the formats of mondo's documentation. Only there for completion, as mondo's package already contains the required doc files.
     43This version should fix most of latest bugs reported for mindi. the 2.0.x branch should now enter in a bug fix only mode. All new features will be introduced in 2.2.x on which we will now work (internationalization, memory management, configuration files, ...)
     47Changes are :
     55- new build process (Bruno Cornec)<br>
     56- Fix a bug in .spec for RPM build (%attr now unused)

     59- New mr_strtok functionn added and used for dm support (Andree Leidenfrost)<br>

     70  (still a problem for filenames with ')

     73(Bruno Cornec)<br>
     81- new build process (Bruno Cornec)<br>
     82- Fix a bug when a disk less than 2.8 MB can be built, to
     83  include enough modules to support SCSI cds

     86(Bruno Cornec)<br>

    1103<p><B>2006-04-08 </B>Mondo 2.0.7 / Mindi 1.0.7 updated to r460</p>
    58 <p><B>2006-03-20 </B>Mondo 2.0.7 / Mindi 1.0.7 are out</p>
    59 <p>
    60 I'm happy to announce the availability of the latest and greatest
    61 version of mondo 2.0.7 / mindi 1.0.7. Version numbers have changed of
    62 format to be more in line with what is done generally (x.y.z)
    63 </p>
    64 <p>
    65 Now available at :
    66 </p>
    68 <p>
    69 mandrake/10.1/mindi-1.0.7-447.101mdk.i386.rpm<br>
    70 mandrake/10.1/mondo-2.0.7-447.101mdk.i386.rpm<br>
    71 mandrake/10.2/mindi-1.0.7-447.102mdk.i386.rpm<br>

    77 </p>
    79 <p>
    80 Other distributions will follow asap (should be able to produce soon
    81 redhat 7.3, fedora core 4, and only after rhel3/4 and sles9) due to the
    82 change in the virtual machines I have to do (now using qemu + more tools
    83 to generate RPMs)
    84 </p>
    86 <p>
    87 The focus on this version has been more around the new website and
    88 documentation, and a bit less on code. So some persistant bugs are still
    89 not corrected (some dvd burning issues and dm/lvm2 support mainly) and
    90 will be hopefully in 2.0.8.
