Here is the second release candidate for the final 1.6.0-i686 series ISO. As with rc1, this is a testing release and approaches the quality we are looking for in the -final release. A lot of small bugs in rc1 have been addressed making this an extremely useful release. Specifically, this release backs up all packages to the installed system for recovery purposes. Dmidecode was added to aid hardware discovery - it shows a ton of handy output on your system's hardware. Ethtool was added as well. The grsecurity kernels now actually are correctly built.
Being the second release candidate I expect some minor bugs to surface once people start testing. Please file bugs accordingly in the tracker and mark them with the version of this release.
