Please test the above bugs, and anything else on the bug tracker.
This should be pretty much the final ISO, so I'm just looking for some confirmations on the above bugs.
Known issues: grub "Release notes" is empty (whoops, blame me!)
Great news Aaron, I'm gonna test tonight..
PS: i made a little "roadmap" to know at which point of the procedure you can verify which item.
* after boot: FS#13038 - Tiny typo in ISO boot message : Should be "Arch Linux Live ISO (vc/n)".
FS#13140 - Official Installation documentation
for 64bit users:FS#13068 - grub-gfx-0.97-7 outdated in x86_64 pacman -Qi grub-gfx. check that it's 0.97-11 or higher
* during installation FS#12949 - `hdparm -I' fails in VMware : check that the disk capacities look okay (afaik you can see this best in the autoprepare one). especially vmware users
* after install / on first boot FS#12896 - USB install - won't boot into install system : USB users, check that it works
FS#13102 - fix, need to copy initial /etc/localtime : check that this file exists on the target system and you don't get fscks because "last mount time was in the future" and stuff like that
FS#13070 / 13057 - grub-gfx installed instead of default grub : check that you have the non-fancy grub
FS#13101 - simple fix to setup script writing timezone to rc.conf : check that your choosen timezone is in rc.conf (you can probably check this already during installation too)
