· Linux kernel 3.4.4;
· KDE SC 4.8.4;
· GCC 4.7.1;
· GRUB2 bash completion has been fixed;
· Installer now supports Btrfs as an experimental feature;
· Installer now supports JFS;
· grubconfig can now install itself to RAID1 mdadm and raw drives with a single option;
· Some files that conflicted with QEMU have been removed;
· Disk-stats build & runtime errors have been fixed.

A complete changelog is available here.
