It's fine to see that the ISO release get so many attention.
Searching with "Arch Linux 2009.02" founds a lot of announces
meanwhile. Either the text of our announce news or a modified. What i
see often in this news is: Arch 2009.02 released. The same "mistake"
what Aaron mentioned: It's not clear for the news writers that we have
a rolling release and that 2009.02 is "only" a snapshot for new
So we should - in the announces for the next iso release - make a
bigger hint on this, like we do it on the download page on
archlinux.org. Somewhat like "For new installations only.
An Arch Linux system can always be updated with `pacman -Syu`"

So we should make this a bigger part in the next news IMHO.
