    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
