Final release is being uploaded!

Give it about two hours, and the final release of SuperTux Live! 1.0 will be available for download. I'm uploading it directly to the server right now.

Final release is current devel

Since any show-stopper bugs have failed to come up, the current development release of SuperTux Live! will be relabeled the final. You can download it now, or just wait for it to be marked stable.
UPDATE: False alarm! The release candidate hasn't been moved to the download mirror yet! Be patient.

A day behind schedule, Beta 3 is out. (CAUTION: DIRECT LINK TO 370MB ISO) It was actually finished a few days ago, but the hoster had more important things that needed to be done (understandably), and so it didn't hit mirrors until today.
Another important update: SLAX 6 RC3 IS OUT, and it uses Glibc 2.5! If you recall, the only reason I didn't use SLAX in the first place is that it used Glibc 2.3, which SuperTux simply can not run on. Since SLAX can make a tiny CD image, it will most likely be the final base system.
Related note: So far, everything one needs to run SuperTux is integrated onto one .lzm (SLAX 6 or later) module. This means SuperTux Milestone 1.9, OpenAL, PhysFS (with soft links so that it'll work), and two bonus levels. I might put it up for separate download if you happen to have SLAX or Wolvix already, but just having a CD is still a good idea.

First test!

The first test of SuperTux Live! v0.92.1, aka "AYBABTU Edition", was a minor disappointment. Since Myah's built-in xorg.conf didn't work, I cobbled together my own version and it still didn't work because I misnamed some of the input devices. (This is big- if xorg.conf doesn't work, X doesn't work, which means graphics don't work.) In addition, I forgot to link together some libraries. But those flaws are fixed, and I'm regenerating the image. It should work fine now.
On a related note, I'm looking into the possibility of having a Crux-based system... ;) Never mind.
