This month's monthly install media update for the rolling-release distribution isn't particularly exciting aside from updated packages, including switching to the Linux 3.6 kernel by default.
The three changes pointed out in the Arch release announcement come down to:
- First media with Linux 3.6.
- copytoram=n can be used to not copy the image to RAM on network boot. This is probably unreliable but an option for systems with very low memory.
- cowfile_size boot parameter mainly for persistent COW on VFAT. See the README file for details.
