OSNews, Generic OSes The Hurd is still doing its thing. "Jeremie Koenig started working on his Google Summer of Code project: bringing not only Java to the Hurd, but also fixing or adding missing parts in the Hurd's components along the way. For example, he already contributed a set of signal handling improvements. Samuel Thibault created the first Debian GNU/Hurd CD set with a graphical installer. You can dowload it at the usual place for Debian CD images."

RE[3]: Status of Hurd?

9months is not that out of day... the whole point of arch is you install the base and then upgrade from the repositories.

The Archlinux install cds weren't built but every few months in the past and only recently from what I remember do they provide "nightlies" I have upgraded arch installs that were over a year old and upgraded fine.

I've been an Arch user for many years now so I know the whole point of Arch thank you very much.

My point was that as the latest build is already out of date and even that is impossible to get hold of; ArchHurd is clearly missing some TLC lately and thus I would struggle to consider it "note worthy" until some ISOs become available again.

That is unless anyone else can find a working mirror? Because I sure couldn't
