Release Notes for K12LTSP 4.2.0 ============================================================================

What's new:

* K12LTSP 4.2.0 is based on Fedora Core 3. Be sure to read the FC3
  release notes at http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/release-notes/fc3/x86/

* The installer media check has been turned off by default. This check
  does not work if the ISO were burned on a 2.6.x kernel without
  being "padded" (i.e. the "-pad" option in cdrecord). If you want to
  run the media check, you may still do so by specifying the following
  at the CD boot prompt:

linux mediacheck

* K12LTSP "meta" packages are now included. These are "empty" packages
  that contain dependancies for all of the packages in a particular
  group. This makes it easy to install a group of packages by
  specifying only the meta package. For example "yum install k12ltsp-core"
  would install off the core K12LTSP packages. Meta packages included

* Tuxpaint now has a graphical configuration utility: tuxpaint-config

* The up2date and yum packages no longer need to be modified
  to included the K12LTSP repository information. These config
  files are now in the fedora-release and k12ltsp-release

* The up2date and yum repositories are now mirrored at the
  University of Tennessee at Knoxville

* The default web browser has changed from Mozilla to Firefox.
  Firefox as been modified to use the K12LTSP bookmarks.

* The LTSP Build Environment (ltsp_i386-lbe) is no longer
  included on the install CDs in order to free up some space.
  Use apt, up2date, or yum if you wish to install it.

The following K12LTSP applications have been upgraded:
