What is done for now:
* Reworked bootloader (
* Implemented "toram" booting method (boot CD completely to RAM, CD can be removed after boot)
* Implemented "fromhdd" booting method (boot from compressed image on HDD, CD can be removed after boot)
* Implemented different modes of partition mounting (mount them in read-write mode or do not mount at all)

For now base system for new release is FreeBSD 5.4. Maybe, final release will be based on 6.0.

Btw, next release will be in two editions - one for Russian-speaking users (with Russian as default language) and one for international users (English as default language, other languages (DE/FR/ES/IT/PL/...) will be also supported)

i recommend you keep it based on 5.x until 6.2 or later.

Please make it possible to download frenzy-0.4 (or even 0.3) from a torrent (like FreeBSD 6.0).
I have a SLOW Internet connection and, due to "various problems", I sometimes get different md5 hashes... it's not very nice to encounter this stuff... :x
Seeding a torrent will also be useful in avoiding bandwidth saturation for your server.

Best wishes

For now I can't seed Frenzy ISO via BitTorrent from my hosting server. If someone can do this, please let me know.

Here is a strong suggestion.......give more than 3 secondds to pick the
language. My biggest problem with current frenzy is that I do not
speak russian and with only 3 seconds to pick sometimes I miss the
language selection.

Next release will be in two 'editions', one of which will have English as default and will have support of common european languages.
