After much procrastination I’ve now tackled the installer backend. What had seemed like a mammoth task actually only took a couple of hours (though it is rather hackish in places). There’s still some work to do, a few bug fixes and post installation configuration stuff but it’s coming along fairly nicely now. Tomorrow I’ll grab a copy of the current installation script from RC3 and make it compatible with the new installer. I think stibs is planning on making the final 1.0 release pretty soon, so I expect the LiveCD installer won’t make it in until the next release.
