Hi folks,

it has been calm for almost a week, but now there are news regarding 
Sugar on a Stick! First of all, new snapshots have been made available.

You can now grab the .iso image from here:


And the virtual appliance from here:


So. What has changed? And why am I so excited about this release?

* The underlying kickstart file structure has changed completely. We've 
merged the files for SoaS and OLPC's Fedora-XO effort, which means that 
both sides won't need anymore to commit the same patch three times.

* We're now including quite a lot of activities from a.sl.o. Of course, 
those need testing! *hint* :)

* As you may have noticed above, the virtual appliance images get now 
created together with the live media image. No need to kick them off 

* General package updates have taken place!

Well, most of these changes concern probably the underlying structure 
and won't be necessarily evident to the average user, but I still quite 
an improvement here.

Please also watch your inbox for upcoming news regarding the SoaS roadmap!

Thanks and happy hacking! :)
    --Your SoaS Team
