Arch 0.4 (Dragon) Released

We are pleased to present Arch 0.4 to the public for general consumption. The ChangeLog and package list are at their usual locations.

This release comes with KDE 3.1rc5 and GNOME 2.0.2 as well as the latest versions of all our usual packges: OpenSSL 0.9.6h, OpenSSH 3.5p1, XFree86 4.2.1, Linux 2.4.20, GCC 3.2.1, and Glibc 2.3.1.

Dragon still provides a streamlined package set (323 packages) but if you want more you can always access our unofficial package repository, which has about 350 more packages and is growing fast. Docs can be found here and live help can usually be found in the #archlinux channel on We also have a user forum where you can post your problems and suggestions.

Happy holidays!
