On March 25, François Dupoux announced a new release of his popular SystemRescueCd Linux-based operating system for rescue and recovery tasks.

SystemRescueCd 3.5.0 comes with important changes and improvements, but the most prominent one is the switch to a new version of the LTS Linux kernel. This is quite a jump, at least in the numbering of the distribution.

Highlights of SystemRescueCd 3.5.0:

• The standard kernel is now Long Term Supported linux-3.4.37 (for both rescuecd and rescue64);
• Alternative kernels were updated to latest stable version, 3.8.4 (for both altker32 and altker64);
• GParted (an excellent partitioning utility) was updated to version 0.15.0;
• e2fsprogs was updated to version 1.42.7.

For more details about the new features and changes, take a look at the official changelog.
