Why? It's been on the cover disc before.

It would more likely be the nvidia version, as that appears to work with non-nvidia graphics cards too.

0.9 may well appear on a subsequent disc. There's no room for 0.81 this month. Even if there was it would probably be out of date by the time the magazine came out.

I stand corrected!!!

I have updated my v0.81a to virtually-v0.9 with via synaptic, also upgrading the kernel, and correcting problems manually. The updates are so many now, that it would be like downloading another disk-full, so I would hang on if starting from scratch.

I have to report that the HAL/DBUS system works a lot better than I thought it would.

I'll be looking forward to trying it out this summer as with anything else you can throw at me. 8)
