      The third openmamba pre-release is available with tag snapshot 20080224. The tests on the

      previous releases let us face and solve some relevant installation problems and the

      result is a more simple installation procedure for most users. Many thanks to all the

      beta testers who made this possible!

      Here are the most important changes of this release:

      • added support for installation in systems with different combinations of IDE, SATA and

        SCSI disks

      • boot menu (grub 2): fixed support for Windows Vista boot
      • installation wizard: check on partitions improved and the whole process has been made simpler by adding more pages to the wizard
      • many system bugfixes

      Before the stable release is ready we plan to release a forth (and last) pre-release with

      the following changes:

      • kernel: update to version 2.6.24
      • configuration dialog for language, country, keyboard and time when installation starts
      • boot menu: support for Windows and other chainloaded system boot from secondary disks
      • boot menu: support for automatic configuration of other Linux systems
