SystemRescueCd 2.4.0 released
Three months after 2.3.0 arrived, version 2.4.0 of the SystemRescueCd Linux distribution has been released.

Supported file systems include Ext2, Ext3 and Ext4, ReiserFS, XFS, JFS, VFAT, NTFS, ISO9660 and Btrfs.
This new version of the distribution sees the standard kernel upgraded to 3.0.8, while the alliterative kernel has been upgraded to the recent Linux 3.1.0 release; the developers note that the Reiser4 patch has been dropped for all kernels. Package updates include version 0.10.0 of the Gnome PARTition EDitor (GParted), X.org Server 1.10.4 and version 7.0.1 of the Firefox web browser.
