UCK 2.0.0 is out!!

* GUI:
* The question about which desktop environment will be used to manually
customize the ISO was removed, this is now autodetected by the backend
* Fix for bug 116018 (--nofork option for adept)
* A question about removing win32 files was added
* "others" option was added to the desktop choice to allow a better
usage with Ubuntu derivatives

  • Backend:
    • remaster-live-cd script was renamed uck-remaster
    • A script for every part of the remastering process was created:
      uck-remaster-unpack-iso, uck-remaster-unpack-rootfs, uck-remaster-unpack-initrd,
      uck-remaster-chroot-rootfs, uck-remaster-pack-rootfs, uck-remaster-pack-initrd,
      uck-remaster-pack-iso, uck-remaster-clean
    • Support for alternate cd remastering was added:
      • uck-remaster-unpack-initrd and uck-remaster-pack-initrd automatically
        detect if you're remastering a desktop or alternate cd and read/put files
        in the right places
      • uck-remaster-prepare-alternate script was added to allow you create the
        directory you need to put extra packages in the alternate iso
      • uck-remaster-finalize-alternate script was added to regenerate the packages
        indexes and re-sign the release with your GPG key
    • REMASTER_HOME is the new default variable every single script can receive as
      parameter, the variable contains the directory where all part of the remaster
      will be stored (default is ~/tmp)
    • Log/error messages got more consinstancy
    • Unuseful error messages were removed to gain readability of the log file
    • uck-remaster-pack-iso now supports PPC, x86_64, ia64
    • Package manager and console applications run inside the livecd are now
    • uck-remaster-remove-win32-files script was added
    • Support for Xubuntu/XFCE was enhanced
    • Bug #53721 was fixed, now gfxboot-theme-ubuntu is downloaded from inside
      the chrooted environment avoiding possible incompatibilities between the host
      system and the remastered system
    • Gutsy images are now recognized
    • uck-remaster-pack-rootfs has the -c (--clean-desktop-manifest) option
      (default is OFF) allowing you to delete "live only" packages from the system
      once that is will be installed on hard disk

* gfxboot-theme-ubuntu dependency was dropped, available languages list
was imported under uck (languages list is updated to gutsy)
