Subject: [gentoo-installer] Quickstart 0.3 Released
Date: Mon, 18 Dec 2006 04:18:54
I've just released Quickstart 0.3. A lot of work has gone into this release in 
the past 2 months since 0.2. Here's the short list:

* partitioning and bootloader code redesigned to allow for arch-specific code
   for each
* x86/amd64 partitioning support rewritten using fdisk instead of sfdisk, since
   sfdisk isn't in busybox
* sun disklabel and partitioning support implemented
* sun bootloader (silo) support added (not yet tested)
* hppa partitioning (uses x86 code) and bootloader (palo) support added and
* many bugs fixed. this is essentially a permanent fixture in this list for
   every release :P

In short, x86, amd64, and hppa are now officially supported by Quickstart. 
Support for sparc will be coming soon.
