Arca Noae is pleased to announce the immediate availability of ArcaOS 5.0.3,
the third maintenance release of ArcaOS 5.0 (Blue Lion).
ArcaOS 5.0.3 is (again) the result of many hours of collaborative work to keep
up-to-date and to further refine ArcaOS 5.0. Post-install fixes are included,
and these will be made available for separate download as part of the
ArcaOS 5.0 Support & Maintenance subscription. In the interim,
a full download of the refreshed media image is required to obtain all
of these fixes and updates.
ArcaOS 5.0.3 includes over 40 updates and fixes since 5.0.2.
The USB stick image package (available as a separate download for ArcaOS
licensees with current support and maintenance subscription) has also
been updated to incorporate the latest changes in ArcaOS 5.0.3.
A bootable ArcaOS 5.0.3 USB stick may be created from any major
operating system at hand (Windows, Linux, MacOS, and of course,
OS/2, eComStation, and ArcaOS). Once the image is restored,
eject, re-insert, and simply copy your personalized ISO
(separately downloaded) to the stick per the included
directions (also detailed in the ArcaOS support wiki).
The stick may then be inserted into any USB 2.0-controlled
port in the target system, and used to boot into the ArcaOS installer.
If everything is working in your current installation, it may
be prudent to wait for the subscription content to become available,
as Arca Noae has not classified any of the 5.0.3 updates as critical.
If you have experienced difficulty installing ArcaOS 5.0.2, the fixes
and updates included in 5.0.3 may address your issue(s).
For a complete list of updates in this release, see the ArcaOS wiki.
To download your fresh ISO, simply visit your customer portal page,
select the Orders & Subscriptions link on the navigation panel to
the left, then click on the order for your ArcaOS license. Once
there, click the download link to request a fresh ISO, and wait
for your notification email.
