"By far the most important news is that 8.2/PPC should
work on both 'OldWorld' and 'NewWorld' machines. In particular, it
DOES work on a 7600 test machine we have in the lab. There have
even been some efforts towards supporting the IBM's PPC machines,
but this has been put "on ice" for now, due to the lack of demand,
and lack of the test machine. Other new features include:
Network install via airport.
Reworked install kernel which works on both NewWorld and
Applescript "wrapper" for setting up BootX parameters for
Kernel 2.4.17-17mdk, which incorporates PPC patches from Ben
Herrenschmidt into the kernel.org source. (ibook2 sound should work
XFree4.2, with support/setup for "fbdev" on OldWorld machines,
and support for Radeon/Riva cards.
Support for Firewire devices(*).
Netatalk for Apple network file/print services(*).
