For immediate release:

Gentoo Linux announces Gentoo Linux 2004.1

The Gentoo Linux Release Engineering team is proud to announce the release
of Gentoo Linux 2004.1. Please consult our mirror index [1] for download
locations and the Gentoo Linux Installation Handbook [2] for detailed installation
instructions.  Support for Gentoo Linux 2004.1 can be found through our
user community by way of the Gentoo Forums [3], IRC [4], and various
community mailing-lists [5]. Release notes for each architecture
can be found linked from the Gentoo Linux Release Engineering project page
[6].

Gentoo Linux 2004.1 highlights many bugfixes that enhance the usability
and quality of all the release components. Much work has been done to improve
the overall quality of the release, such as providing GPG signatures for security
and online listings of what files are included in the installation stages,
PackageCDs, and LiveCDs for each architecture. Catalyst [7], the Gentoo Linux
release meta-tool has also undergone numerous improvements that have
solidified its codebase.

Pre-packaged Gentoo Linux CD sets as well as well as an easy to use donation
system are available through the Gentoo Linux store [8]. 

For more information, please contact the Gentoo Linux Release Engineering team
at releng@g.o. Thank you for choosing Gentoo Linux!
