jhalfs 0.2 Released
Jeremy Huntwork - 2005/12/02

There is a new implementation of ALFS available, called jhalfs. The main purpose of jhalfs is to provide a pure reference build of LFS by extracting the commands to run directly from the LFS book. This has the added benefit of reducing maintenance as there are no profiles needed.

This is the first release of jhalfs. Version 0.1 was a proof-of-concept and not a working release. You can download version 0.2 here.
