Well it has been a long time since I posted anything here and I don't feel like I have done much in the past year but there are a few things in the pipeline.

First off, centos-2. This is a rebuild of RHEL21AS but with the redhat logos removed. It is currently at beta3 but I have not had any bug reports so next week I think I will release a final version which will be more or less the same as the redhat U3 version. See http://www.caosity.org/

The cAos project also has centos-3 which is a RHEL3 rebuild and cAos which is an improved version of RHL (but you will have to check the web site for the version numbering).

I am also slowly working on updated rawwrite tools. I have a version of dd ready which will be a core part of a new studio of tools. I am currently working on self writing disk images. This will be a .exe file which contains one or more compressed disk images. When you run it it will create the disks for you. My test disk image compresses well so the .exe should be less than the disk image. We will see how well it works when you have a disk image which is full of compressed files.

I think that will do for now. I should get back into writing some code.
