|| ||Tin Hat 20090519 is out! |

I'd like to announce that a new release of Tin Hat is 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 concentrates primarily on updating the hardened tool chain,
and no changes were made to the kernel since the last release. The
system was completely recompiled using hardened Gentoo's stock gcc-4.3.3
plus stack-protection added via the CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS in make.conf.
Extensive testing of the most used services and apps gave no issues with
the exception of Evolution which required lazy linking.
As with every release, we sync-ed upstream with Gentoo. Major package
updates include coreutils, util-linux, and xorg-server and its
drivers/libs. Firefox was also update to the more secure 3.0.10.
