Hi everyone!
The Tanglu Beta2 was released today/yesterday! There are new
live-images for available for KDE and GNOME.
The beta-release contains the following changes and bugfixes:
 * The systemd journal is now used for logging exclusively.
    You can install rsyslog to get the old behaviour back, and switch
    the journal to non-persistent mode.
    If you want to test the journal, type "journalctl -b" to get all
messages from last
 * KDE received a new theming for KDM/KSplash, so we can now show a
face-browser in
   KDM, which is considered more user-friendly. User faces are now
loaded from the user's
   settings, instead of system directories by default.
 * Tanglu does no longer include an MTA by default. If you want one,
install one and configure it
 * We ship with a functional live-installer now! You can install
Tanglu easily to try it out.
    Unfortunately, the Debian installer is still not working, so you
will have to boot into
    the live session to install Tanglu.
 * GNOME is now working. GDM and g-s-d will no longer crash. The Shell
and various other
   GNOME parts were updated to GNOME 3.10
 * We now ship the 1.14 version of Xorg
 * Linux 3.12 is now default

Known issues:
 * People with ATi graphics cards might have trouble with installing
the proprietary fglrx driver
 * In some very rare cases, the live-cd won't auto-login. In that
case, just reboot and try again, or use the password "live" to access
the account.
 * Some packages are not installable, for a list, see [1] (they will
be removed from the release if they are not fixed)
