The Arch Linux distribution that uses a rolling-release model has provided new installation media that provides an updated snapshot of their core packages along with some improvements to the distributed media itself.

With the Arch Linux 2010.05 build all of the ISO files support now either being burnt to a CD/DVD or a USB disk, more than half of the packages in core are no XZ compressed, dual architecture image support that contains both i686 and x86_64 packages and the user can choose at boot-time what architecture to target, support for PXE booting, and various other changes.

The Arch Linux 2010.05 snapshot contains the Linux 2.6.33.4 kernel, PacMan 3.3.3-5, and Glibc 2.11.1-3, among other packages.

The release announcement for Arch Linux 2010.05 can be read at ArchLinux.org.
