Gentoo Linux is proud to bring you the long awaited Gentoo Linux 2005.0 release!
This release has had a few setbacks including a complete security rebuild, but with the help of the many teams within the Gentoo developer community, we believe that this release will be one of the best that we have ever had.
This release includes new installation media from Alpha, AMD64, PPC, PPC64, SPARC, and x86 and includes stages for IA64 and SPARC32. Please check out our mirrors to find the closest one to you. As with 2004.3, you will be able to download optimized PackageCD images for x86 and PPC via our bittorrent server, and also our “unofficial” secondary bittorrent server, provided by Friends of Gentoo e.V. in Germany.
No offense to them, but it doesn’t seem too hard to build a new CD. They did do a “complete security rebuild,” but other than that, every version is pretty much the same. Each one just has newer packages. All you have to do is do what you did last time. Just recompile. Mostly, it seems to be publicity.
