CTKArch features a new optional bright theme!
Files are ordered in the iso to fasten the boot and Asunder (for cdrip) was added.
This version allows you to turn your live into a “nomad install” by saving all system
changes in a folder of the persistent data partition. MKaddon supports AUR packages.
Interface details have been improved: default file associations, environment menu, support for
laptops' volume buttons…

CTKArch has a new website!
It uses the graphics of the official Arch Linux site and is
written simply, as it should be. ☺
If you are interested, the sources are available here.
Wow. I didn't expect my tiny live system to be taken for a distribution when I started “just for fun”!
But it looks like it is now worth a
page on Distrowatch! ☺
This had very good consequences: I received a lot of good advice and ideas by e-mail!
CTKArch, formerly only available in French, is now translated to English!
HAL has been deleted (faster boot!), Sylpheed (e-mail) and volumeicon added, and it has
complete early KMS support, now that Nouveau is in the repositories. Installation on
memory cards and the new BTRFS filesystem are now supported.
Addons can now be put on the CD image (with isomaster), and advanced copy-to-ram
options are available.

Updating version 0.5 causes some problems due to configuration changes upstream.
HAL is forsaken for X.org and mounting removable storage media (we now use udisks);
nouveau is now in the official repositories, and fbpanel's configuration slightly changed.
That was partly due to the early support for Nouveau's video acceleration and to hard-coded
optimisations of the initscripts. I hope you won't blame me for that, for I learned from those errors.
The script is there.
Note that it will finish the update whether you started it or not. Enjoy!
