Fatdog64-800 Final Release Notes

Fatdog64-800 Final was released on 28 February 2019.

Fatdog64-800 GNU/Linux is the first release of Fatdog64 with a new base platform, replacing the LFS 7.5/CLFS 3.0 platform, which was used in Release 710 series.

Release 800 is now based on LFS (Linux From Scratch) 8.2, combined with CLFS (Cross LFS) 2017.17, with packages updated to same version of BLFS or later.

At the time of the release there are more than 1700 packages and many more will be added as time passes.

As usual Fatdog64 does not upgrade from any older version but especially so for this release, being based a totally different platform. Save file/folders from older versions aren't compatible, start a fresh save file/folder instead.

A few older packages may still work, but in general they aren't supported and you should upgrade to the new package version if available. The same applies for SFS archives. Of special note: this release uses openssl from 1.1.x branch, which is known to be incompatible with openssl 1.0.x branch that was used in earlier Fatdog64 versions. All older applications that depend on openssl will definitely __NOT__ work.

Please report all bugs to the forum support thread.
