Hi all,

The gNewSense project is pleased to announce version 2.2 of its 100%
FSF Free GNU/Linux distribution. This is the second point update to the
release codenamed 'deltah'.

This release was made 2009-04-15, and contains all security updates
made to the archive up to and including 2009-04-14.

This release introduces GLX back into the default install. This enables
hardware accelaration by default, meaning Compiz and 3D games will work
once again.

As with 2.1, gNewSense 2.2 is available as a live cd for x86 (i386)
systems, using GNOME as the default desktop environment (others such as
XFCE or KDE are available post installation).

On a personal note, I'd like to ask you not to find major regressions
in my first release.
