i just placed the new 0.4 "Core Dump" TEST ISO
to the mirrors:

1 week testing should be enough, 
I tested them in kvm-qemu and didn't find an issue.

Hi Arch community,

This is the second release to use our new repo layout.
There are two ISOs, ftp and core.

- RAM usage has been revisited, these are the new recommendations:
     * FTP ISO, CORE ISO: arch boot image
       160 MB RAM x86_64/i686 (all packages selected)
     * CORE ISO: lowmem boot image
       96  MB RAM x86_64 (all packages selected)
       85  MB RAM i686   (all packages selected)
       64  MB RAM i686   (only base packages selected)

- fixed intel wireless automatic module loading (arch boot image)

- added more checks and improvements to autoprepare of harddisk
