The August snapshot of our live and install media comes with updated packages
and the following changes on top of the [previous iso image][1]:

  * GRUB 2.0 instead of the legacy 0.9 version is available.

  * The [Installation Guide][2] can be found at _/root/install.txt_.

  * ZSH with [Grml's configuration][3] is used as interactive shell to provide a
user friendly and more convenient environment. This includes completion support
for pacstrap, arch-chroot, pacman and most other tools.

  * The network daemon is started by default which will automatically setup your
network if DHCP is available.

Note that all these changes only affect the live system and not the base system
you install using pacstrap. The iso image can be downloaded from our [Download
page][4]. The next snapshot is scheduled for September.
