Arch Linux, somewhat popular amongst the OSNews population, has been updated to the latest version of 2009.08, and the images have been released for download. It has the latest and greatest of core software, including kernel 18.104.22.168-1, udev 141-5 and pacman 3.3.0-3. The AIF also has been developed quite a bit, featuring a better disk editor with support for dm_crypt and lvm setups, automated installations using config files, a framework to build one's own installation procedures, better date and time settings including ntp support, and refactored grub installation methods.
Other points of interest are:
• Enhanced boot device detection on image start
• Bugfixes (xfs freeze, mirror setting, clock correctness, network settings, ...)
• More useful automatic configuration settings for your target system based on your settings during the installation
• Ftp images are renamed to netinstall to avoid confusion
