ArchBang Spring Release

Am in the process of uploading ArchBang Spring release to sourceforge. Updated packages, change of theme and added in Nitrogen wallpaper manager. Major changes to note: pacman-init and dhcp service are not run at boot of live iso. This means that ArchBang boots much faster. Downside is user needs to run a script called pacman-setup (~/Desktop). This script creates pacman required keys and allow user to set up mirrorlist. Once leafpad the mirrorlist file find your nearest server to your location. Uncomment the lines and save file. On exit pacman should work as normal (given a working network connection). Note that you do not need a working network connection to install ArchBang. It is simply a way of testing out Archlinux(tm) before installing to a real device.

Enjoy
