Liberté Linux 2011.1 Released

Secure and anonymous email-like communication was implemented. XChat, Pidgin, FBReader, OpenSSH client, and H.264 video / Speex audio encoding were added. Linux kernel 2.6.37 with SquashFS LZMA is used. Startup and shutdown were made faster using custom initramfs and parallel OpenRC. Haveged serves as a reliable entropy source, and NTP is disabled in favor of exclusive HTP over Tor. Kexec-based boot wipes RAM, even when triggered by boot media removal. KMS- and VESA-dependent boots have been separated, fixing video card issues. The X server locks the screen when a laptop's lid is closed, with improved lock robustness.
