      Distribution Release: Tiny Core Linux 6.0 "piCore"
[Tiny Core Linux]

     Béla Markus has announced the release of version 6.0 of Tiny Core 
Linux "piCore" edition, a minimalist distribution designed for the 
Raspberry Pi single-board computer: "Team Tiny Core is pleased to 
announce the immediate availability of piCore 6.0. The most important 
change is the use of the official long-term 3.12.y (3.12.36) Linux 
kernel to offer more stable operation over experimental kernels and to 
get wider range of hardware supported, specially audio devices. The FLTK 
library has been updated to 1.3.3 to enable Unicode. FLTK 1.1 and 1.3 
can be installed at the same time, and old applications using 1.1 will 
continue to work. The size of SD card images has been reduced. It boots 
in safe overclocking mode to shorten boot time by 20% with performance 
governor; switch to 'ondemand' when startup completes. Other changes: 
Core base synchronised with the common 6.0 base; Raspberry Pi firmware 
updated to January 19, 2015 version; e2fsprogs updated to 1.42.12...."
