Finnix is a small, self-contained, bootable Linux CD distribution for
system administrators, based on Debian testing. Finnix 109 includes a
number of new features and bug fixes. Linux kernel 3.10 is included, USB
3.0 boot support has been fixed, PowerPC G5 automatic fan / thermal
control has been implemented, and "nomodeset" is now passed by default,
increasing boot compatibility on many Radeon graphics cards.

Minimal build support added to Project NEALE

Project NEALE, the system to build Finnix releases, has been extended
with a new "minimal" mode. This mode builds an ISO with just enough
software to start up and shut down, and excludes the hundreds of
sysadmin utilities found on a normal Finnix ISO. Remasterers and
developers may use this as a base for their own software and utilities,
rather than basing on full Finnix releases. For more information, please
see the Project NEALE page.
