Finally ! a new beta

it was about time :-)

After quite a long time I have fainlly been able to release a new version (not just an update).

Here it is, version 2.9 Alpha. You can download it from this URL : http://www.linuxliveusb.com/en/other-versions

Click the link below to see what's new (or just read the included README.TXT file).

Don't trust the unchanged look, there are a lot of changes under the hood. A big graphical update is planned for next major version 3.0.

This version is an Alpha meaning it can crash and have some serious bugs so please report them using the contact form on this website.
