Gentoo Linux 2005.0 for x86 is now complete, and we will begin fulfilling x86 pre-orders today! AMD64 and PowerPC should start shipping very shortly as well.
Please note that 2005.0 is not yet available for download on Gentoo mirrors -- the Store is getting 2005.0 a week in advance of it appearing on various Gentoo mirrors worldwide. This is a good thing, as it will give us several days to catch up on Store pre-orders.
I'd like to thank everyone who has been waiting for 2005.0 for being so patient.Gentoo's release engineering and security teams made an intense down-to-the-wire effort to fix last minute security bugs in this release. Many Gentoo developers went above and beyond to produce an amazing, well-tested release of Gentoo. The entire Gentoo development team should
be praised for their hard work over the past few months. On behalf of the Gentoo development team, I hope that you find 2005.0 to be worth the wait
Founder, Gentoo Linux
