Looks cool. Will download and try tonight - first time I have used Icaros and the first time I have used Aros in a long while.

This release is a step backwards for me. The Nouveau driver no longer works with my GTX295 nor on my Dell Laptop which uses an Nvidia Quadro 135M. It worked on both previously. Was also frustrated because I couldn't get AROS to boot from my USB stick in spite of the instructions. The install script would run just fine on DU0: but GRUB would fail when I attempted to boot from the newly created system drive.

@m0lebrain

Doble click on AROS:Tools/LUPD/LiveUpdater

It will ask you to choose if you like to update Icaros from a file or from Internet. I had downloaded the update file so I chose from file. Try from Internet if you haven't downloaded the update file.

Edit: typo

People with icaros 1.3, please apply patch 01 before updating to 1.3.1. It fixes liveupdater as well.

Just a little update for interested people...

We've got sound in VMware!!!! Ross' PCI128 drivers have been ported to AROS by Kalamatee, and test release works like a charm. See aros-exec for more info.
