PKG Tools 4.0.1-1 Released

Removed warning "unable to remove XXX: Directory not empty" when upgrading a package.

Packages are now identified by their names only (and not by name and version as before). This makes it easier for users to upgrade and remove packages. This, of course, comes with a price. You can not install two packages with the same name.

Status changed

In the begining of Trinity OS, we start to re-design and modified the BSD Kernel, but we see that this is not good idea, the problem depends on the difference between PowerPC and other platformce. It a very hard job, to make a stable and secure BSD Kernel. Than we realize this, we made some changes in our sources, and soon will post a highly modified linux kernel 2.2.20, with some security addons, fixes, and i hope, that this project will grow and up every day
