The August snapshot of our live and install media comes with updated
packages and the following changes on top of the <a
iso image</a>:
<li>GRUB 2.0 instead of the legacy 0.9 version is available.</li>
<li>The <a
Guide</a> can be found at /root/install.txt</li>
<li>ZSH with GRML's config 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.</li>
<li>The network daemon is started by default which will automatically
setup your network when dhcp is available.</li>
Note that all these changes only affect the live system and not the
base system you install using pacstrap.

Any thing I missed here or unclear? Let me know. So far we are ready to
go; archiso has been updated and I pushed a package into [extra]. The
only thing missing is a small patch for arch-chroot that should be
applied: http://paste.xinu.at/ktF/

It's only been 20 days since the last release, but I'd like to move to
a schedule where a new iso is released at the beginning (first week) of
a month. It's still quite a list of changes; not even mentioned a few
changes to archiso and the install scripts.
