It’s out and it rocks. Quite a few changes: some filesystem modules have been moved out, changes in applications, and new icons and theme (blackandblue). The filesystem modules had no progs in MyDSL so nobody should even notice they’re gone. As far as applications go, mtpaint replaces xpaint. Plenty of folder icons if you don’t like the default color scheme. There are many more improvements.
I burned the ISO pretty fast to give it a quick spin. Now running installed HDD-USB. Here’s a first screenshot, lucky-style with the tray on top.
