Releases:
2008-07-28 00:00:00.0 BLAG Linux And GNU 90001 is available    View
It comes on a single CD (684 megs), is easily installed, and user friendly. This release follows quickly on the heels of BLAG 90000, as there were a few annoying issues with that, some of which have been sorted, such as some broken dependencies. A number of packages have been added to the CD, some of which appeared in earlier blag releases, such as: bittorrent, freej, gcc, gqview, gthumb, thunderbird, vnc-server, xchat. The CD has 97 package updates including a new kernel-libre-2.6.25.10-86.fc9.1, firefox 3.0.1, gnome/gtk2/nautilus packages, pidgin, xorg and more... Known issues with this release: Use yum instead of apt, or uncomment GPG line in /etc/apt/apt.conf (or install those keys); Automajick kickstart installs are not currently available; On some installs you have to hit ctrl-alt-f7 after firstboot when you add a user; this is only needed the first time.
2008-07-16 00:00:00.0 BLAG Linux And GNU 90000 is available    View
It has been awhile since I've sent out an announcement, but quite a bit has happened since our last release, 70000. Alpha releases based on Fedora 8 and 9 made regular appearances. Linux-libre, a project to make a branch of the Linux kernel with non-free software removed, has flourished. This is the first "major" release of BLAG to include this kernel by default. Upstream (read: Linus) is now making moves to make it easier so everyone can have a truly free kernel. They're not there yet, but they are advancing and will hopefully make this separate kernel unnecessary real-soon-now. But until they do, we'll have linux-libre. :)
2007-06-29 00:00:00.0 BLAG Linux And GNU 70000 Alpha has been released    View
An alpha test image of BLAG 70k is available on the FTP site. This release is meant for people who would like to preview and test the next stable release of BLAG which will be 70000. The current stable release of BLAG is 60001. This 70k series is updated to use Fedora 7 as a base and kernel 2.6.21. It's in pretty good shape already, but has a few things to smooth out.
2007-05-23 00:00:00.0 BLAG Linux And GNU 60001 is available now    View
The first update to the BLAG 60k series, BLAG 60001, has been released. This is just a 'roll up' of recent package updates, including an update from the 2.6.18 kernel to 2.6.20. The base package set remains the same. Over 200 updated packages are included. This release is primarily done so people who download the ISO don't have to then download a bunch of package updates. The repository now has over nine thousand packages and the developer's DVD set now takes three DVDs.

The second update to the Fedora Core 5 based, single-CD, 100% Free distribution has been released. Highlights for this release are the latest kernel 2.6.17, the 'promotion' of BitlBee (an IRC to other chat networks gateway application) and Irssi (a terminal-based IRC client) from the repository onto the main CD, and updates to such major packages as Firefox 1.5.0.7, with BLAG's unique set of activist and independent media bookmarks), GIMP 2.2.13, Inkscape 0.44.1, Scribus 1.2.5, Thunderbird 1.5.0.7 and XChat 2.6.6.

This includes BLASTERISK - the free BLAG telephone service for Free Software users, developers and Indymedia activists.
