Mensys announced today via the eCS Distributors Mailing List that thay will release yet another Release Canditate before the final 2.0 version will be released.

Right now they are working on the following topics:

  • A new kernel will be installed by default, which will enable eCS to work on all systems with 4 GB of RAM. (But where will the new kernel come from?)
  • "Massive" update of UNIAUD for working on so-called HDA hardware - audio devices integrated on motherboards.
  • The installer will enable installation next to Windows Vista - the disk layout has changed slightly in Vista, so some updates are necessary.
