I'd like to announce that there is a new release of Tin Hat out. Tin
Hat is a fully featured Linux Desktop based on Hardened Gentoo which
runs purely in RAM. It aims to be very secure, stable and fast.
This release addresses important updates from upstream Hardened Gentoo,
including updates to hardened-sources-2.6.28-r7 and
glibc-2.8_p20080602-r1. Approximately 130 other... packages were also
updated. Password hashing was switched form MD5 to SHA512. The build
system now allows the option of removing some documentation when
constructing the ISOs, thus reducing their size by about 100MB, and also
reducing the tmpfs RAM usage by about 300MB. Tin Hat is now distributed
in full and slimmed down versions for both i686 and amd64 architectures.
New themes were introduced.
Thank you hardened gentoo team :)
