Release Notes

  • There is a major change in the installation process where the long-lived linuxrc script used for configuring stuff for s390x is now removed and dracut options are used to provide those information. And because we don't want to delay the release of Fedora 17 it means that there can be scenarios where Fedora can't be installed now. We are working on it, but naturally will appreciate reports of such scenarios.
  • the Haskell compiler ghc and its companion packages are now provided also on s390x, thanks to Jens Petersen for the bootstrapping
  • Eclipse is now built for s390x, thanks to Krzysztof Daniel and the rest of Eclipse team
