The Ark Linux team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Ark

There have been many changes since the previous 2006.1 release - all components
have been updated to current versions (for example, Ark Linux 2007.1-rc1
includes KDE 3.5.7, OpenOffice.org 2.2.1, Linux 2.6.22-rc6, glibc 2.6, and
has been built completely with gcc 4.2), hardware detection has been improved,
many new drivers are included, and many additional applications and games have
been added to our software repository.
We also have good news for developers and OEMs: The Ark Linux build system has
been extended to allow customized builds of both Ark Linux and Ark Linux Live
including your packages of choice - making it easier than ever to build
your own Linux distribution. All details on the new build system can
be found at http://wiki.arklinux.org/index.php/Customized_Ark_Linux_CDs .

Ark Linux is a Free Software project that exists and grows only because of the
help of many volunteers that donate their time and effort. Ark Linux is always
looking for new volunteers and contributions, whether it's help with coding,
bug fixing or reporting, helping with support, writing documentation,
translations, promotion, money, hardware, etc. All contributions are gratefully
appreciated and eagerly accepted. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
