Gentoo 2006.1: A Thing of Dreams?

Filed under
Gentoo

Gentoo Linux 2006.1 is now out offering users the latest in package updates for the community-built meta-distribution.

The release also offers support for an interesting processor, the Hitachi SuperH, which is included in Sega's long-dead Dreamcast game console.

The 2006.1 release is the second official milestone release from Gentoo this year and follows the 2006.0 release by six months.

The release serves as a marker for progress made in the Gentoo project.

"As with all new Gentoo releases, this one brings new packages to the 'out of the box' install," Gentoo Developer Christel Dahlskjaer told internetnews.com
