Heh, this is an oddity. Adding an s indicates plural, adding an apostrophe s indicates possession... but it all gets confused when you start throwing acronyms into the mix... because adding a lone s may make it appear as if the s is part of the acronym... but I digress.
We proudly announce the release of the new Arch Linux installation images, version 2009.02 It took us quite a while, but we think the result is worth it: we added some cool new things and ironed out some long-lasting imperfections 2009.02 comes with the following features:
Minor changes inline, mainly to shrink the bullet list a bit:
- Kernel 2.6.28
- Ext4 support. Installation can be done on a ext4 root partition.
also the ISO is ready (grub) to act as a rescue/maintainance cd for systems with ext4 root partitions.
- Rescue and maintenance capabilities for Ext4 root partitions
- New ISOs (ftp-iso i686 and x86_64) with isolinux as bootloader.
Some users have reported issues with booting when using the Grub bootloader. For these systems we offer cd's with the isolinux bootloader.
- Fallback ISOs with the ISOLINUX bootloader, for those that have
trouble booting Grub-based images
- Several bugfixes in the installer
- Brought the included documentation up-to-date
- Inclusion of the AIF (Arch Linux installation framework):
Currently still unsupported and under development. But we want to make this the new installer in the future, so if you like to test bleeding-edge stuff you could give it a try. (it also supports lvm and dm_crypt)
- Inclusion of AIF (Arch Linux Installation Framework), the next
generation installer, currently under development.
If you encounter any problems, you can check for bug reports (or file a new one) under the "Release Engineering" project at http://bugs.archlinux.org For more info about the releng team and how to get in touch with us, see http://www.archlinux.org/news/430/
What's next? Our goal is to bring coordinated releases following the rhythm of kernel releases, in order to provide optimal hardware support. The roadmap (and current open bugs) of the next release (which will be based on 2.6.29) can be found on http://bugs.archlinux.org/index.php?do=index&tasks=&project=6&du...

Otherwise it seems good to me.
Good, I agree to all of your changes. I'm okay with you publishing your version in a few days :)
