2009-03-16 Site Downtime

We had originally planned on upgrading to Alpine Linux 1.10 and we did, but it seems the php.ini file was a killer for our wiki and site server. I apologize for the downtime from 10:30-12:30. All systems are back-online.

2010-02-16 Alpine Linux 1.10 Release Candidates are Here

Its been over a month since the last release update, but the 1.10 Alpine Linux Release Candidates are here.

There's a 33MiB mini-iso, so you can download just what you need; and Vserver support is back. You can get to the various flavors of Alpine Linux from the new page.

The vserver support has PAX disabled, so its not a hardened kernel. But it does bring the vserver hosting up to a current kernel.

This version has fixed a number of bugs, and evidently people are running Alpine Linux on server-grade hardware these days. So a number of issues with dealing with server-grade devices have been addressed.

Also included is the normal upgrade of all the normal packages. The full list will be on the wiki when it leaves RC status.
