I dont celebrate christmas, but thanks for the present!!! Awesome

I'd like to state that Compiz Fusion works so much smoother in this release, compared to 64bit 3.4f with my Geforce 8600m GT. Which is strange because I upgraded the nvidia-drivers to the latest version. Anyways, keep up the good work!!

Can't wait for stable edition.

And how easy is it to upgrade to KDE4 in 3.5 while running on LiveDVD?

As for space and time maybe try not to update many files or big files while in live cd /dvd as it could end up locking up the live session as happened to me some time ago LOL.

Rather just make space and install it then install kde4 , Either way it will likely work just much faster on installed hd.

Well, that's actually 3.0 :) Previous versions weren't XML-based.

And I think the other is V2, the old non-XML way. Or could be V1, I'm not sure.
You could also put V3 metalinks into a link like that, syntax is

Code: Select all

http://www.example.com/original-file.iso#!metalinkv3!http://www.example.com/list-of-mirrors.metalink
However, any #! syntax is highly deprecated; it's a nice trick but people at IETF really complained about abusing fragment identifiers like that.

LOL cool as long as some can fix it and post a working one. No idea about the achy breaky hart thingy LOL , me = clueless here.

Sry just ran the web gui from their website + added links / md5 = make file then coppied and pasted the insides of this file to the post or from the website results.
Hopefully you can make it nice and post it here or anywhere that is correct place for it , just seems nice to have something like this as a lot of people would like to download it and this could make live easier for them. :mrgreen:

Darn still about 86F outside 27C , 11pm at night LOL Where is the aircon LOL.

As far as I know there won't be any xdeltas. I would expect xdeltas for loop2, but you will need this initial .iso
It's still processing but... So far it looks like I can confirm: xdelta from 3.4f to 3.5 Loop 1 r1 gives very little gain.

Seems pretty stupid to me that they didn't keep the old URL valid, at least for a while. Think how many thousand links worldwide they just broke. Sigh...
