Hi everyone,

We have just released Tin Hat 20080830.  For those unfamiliar with Tin
Hat, it is a linux distribution derived from hardened Gentoo which aims
to provide a very secure, stable and fast Desktop environment that lives
purely in RAM.

This release includes bugfixes/updates to keep Tin Hat in sync with
Gentoo, including updating the hardened kernel to the latest stable
version: 2.6.25-hardened-r4.  We've also added support for Bluetooth as
well as *some* wireless adaptors --- the realtek rtl8187 works well, but
the belkin rt2500usb, rt73usb, rt2x00usb chips do not.  Tin Hat now
supports RAID, LVM, FUSE and EncFS filesystems.  Recall that while Tin
Hat runs purely in RAM, it does allow mounting of encrypted hard
drives.  This support has now been extended to RAID and/or LVM volumes.
