Fixstars has announced the release of Yellow Dog Linux 6.2, a CentOS-based distribution designed for the Apple PowerPC and Sony PlayStation machines: "Fixstars today announced the immediate availability of Yellow Dog Linux 6.2, delivering several updates and improvements making it simpler to install, faster, and easier to use. This release offers an updated kernel 2.6.29 for 64-bit systems, OpenOffice.org 3.0, Firefox 3.0.6 and IBM Cell SDK 3.1.0.1, as well as the next generation of ps3vram for fast, temporary file storage or swap using PS3 video RAM. With this release, ps3vram is up to 50% faster than in Yellow Dog Linux 6.1 and is automatically enabled as swap. With Yellow Dog Linux 6.2, Fixstars has added a fourth alternative for the desktop environment: Xfce." Read the full release announcement for further details. Yellow Dog Linux 6.2 is available for immediate download from the YDL.net subscription service (US$69.95) and will be released to pubic mirrors for free download at the end of July.
