Subject: Openwall GNU/*/Linux (Owl) 1.1 release


For those few who don't know yet, Openwall GNU/*/Linux (or Owl) is a
security-enhanced operating system with Linux and GNU software as its
core, intended as a server platform.  More detailed information is
available on the web site:

After another year of development Owl 1.1 release is finally out.

Owl 1.1 is currently available for purchase on a CD and will also be
available for download after January 7, 2004.  Owl 1.1 CDs may be
ordered online with delivery worldwide via this web page:

The major changes made since 1.0 release are documented:

CDs are bootable on x86 and include a live system, x86 binary
packages for installation to a hard disk, and full source code which
may be rebuilt with one simple command ("make buildworld").  Security
tools such as John the Ripper and Nmap are usable right off the CD,
without requiring a hard disk, -- and indeed they're also available
with Owl installs you make.
