We've been working hard at preparing Nova over the last few weeks and now it's almost ready. Arch Linux 0.5beta4 is available on the mirrors now, which has all the functionality of the final release but without updated documentation.
If you do not require concise, up-to-date installation help, then feel free to grab the beta4 iso (625mb) and give it a whirl. If you'd like to save some download time, you can get the beta4-base iso which contains only base packages (103mb). The base iso is suitable for most broadband users who can easily download other packages with our package manager, pacman.
Remember, this one is beta. If you find bugs, please enter them in the bugtracker.
