CDlinux, a currently Montreal based Linux distribution, just released new version 0.9.1 yesterday. This is a yet another big leap toward CDlinux 1.0, integrated many new features and enhancements, including:

a new GUI installation/upgrade wizard
rewrite the "persistent mode" code and save persistent data as squashfs
replace fcitx with scim to support im for more locales
add full support for de_DE, en_CA, en_GB, fr_CA, fr_FR, ja_JP, ru_RU
add support for "Safe Graphics Mode" in case native Xorg driver failed
determine wether to run in RAM or loop mode more smartly

Linux and Microsoft Windows Future
