We are moving our IRC channels to a new host, Libera.Chat, which is run by a Swedish non-profit organisation.
CRUX 3.6.1 is a bugfix release which fixes a single non-critical bug during update. See the report here. Note: if you already installed 3.6 you do NOT need to reinstall.
During the week our trusty old server finally gave up and died a heroes death. Luckily we were planning on migrating everything to new hardware so we were somewhat prepared. Unfortunately the server failure happened before we had migrated everything so crux.nu and related services were down for a few days. As of right now most things are back online with the exception of our mailinglists. We expect to have those back up within a few days.
After a hard disk failure we had to shut down the server for a short time. Once again Charlie from Kalmar NDC quickly replaced the disk things for us. Huge thanks!
A hard disk failure forced us to take the server down for a short time, thanks to Charlie and his son from Kalmar NDC the exchange was no problem at all. Thanks to both of you for the "christmas gift"!
Due to a hard disk failure the Server hosting crux.nu, the Ports repositories and bugtracker will require some maintenance. It is scheduled to start at Apr 17th 2010 18:30 CEST and last for about three hours. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Update: The upgrade went just fine. We want to thank Kalmar NDC and Charlie for the great support and upgrading our Server with new disks!
We believe we had a problem with crux.nu's MTA setup. A couple of subscribers have been unsubscribed from our mailing lists because crux.nu couldn't deliver mail to them. We believe that we fixed the original problem, and that other MTAs on the planet should be able to love us again. Sorry for the inconvenience.
We have tweaked and fixed our bug tracker somewhat: Every user now has the necessary privileges to assign bugs to anyone. Also, the contrib members have been "promoted" from the reporters group to the developers group. In addition, Johannes Winkelmann has volunteered to help with bug triaging. These changes should help cutting down the number of bugs that go unnoticed. If you just reported a bug and know who might be responsible for it, please go ahead and assign it right away.

CRUX 2.2 is now also available for i586. You will find the ISO image in the download section.
We are happy to announce that after a long time in development, CRUX 2.2 is finally released. The highlights of this release include udev support out of the box, GCC 4.0.3, glibc 2.3.6 and X11R6.9. For more information, have a look at the release notes.
We are also sad to report that Per Lidén, the creator of CRUX, has retired from the project because of personal reasons (see his mail). CRUX will, however, live on as a team effort developed by the former CLC (CRUX Linux Community) team. We wish Per good luck in his future endeavours and thank him for providing a stable base for us to improve on.
The ports tree for core and opt are now hosted on this server. Check out the ServerMigration document for detailed informations about this switch. If you're interested, you can also read the announcement.
The new server for crux.nu is up and running. You are looking at the new Trac/Wiki based web pages with Subversion integration. There might still be documents/files on the old servers that haven't been moved yet but most of it should be here and working by now.
The annual CRUXCon event started today. We're in New Bedford/Boston this year. The main task for this year's get together is to get the new crux.nu server up and running that will host both the old crux.nu and CLC. This will require quite a lot of work, but we hope to find time to discuss other things as well.
CRUX 2.1 is now also available for i486 (with uClibc), i586 and x86_64. You will find these ISO images in the download section.
I'm happy to announce that CRUX 2.1 is finally here. See the change log for a complete list of changes since the last release. Go to the download section to download the ISO image (~222MB). Please use a Download mirror.
Jeremy Jones has contributed a CRUX ISO for the x86_64 architecture. This ISO is a release candidate based on the upcoming CRUX 2.1. For further information have a look at the README file. The ISO is available in the download section.
