"Booting and running beta1 works very well. One boot change I noticed. Starting with beta1, on every boot I get: Updating... layered-file system next boot will be faster! (in pink) and there is a 2 second pause as that happens. In earlier versions, I only got the next boot will be faster! msg when adding/deleting an SFS addon.

Re Frisbee
Username: BarryK
"cthisbear, No I won't put Frisbee into the final. It makes too many changes. It's a case of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". Rerwin mentioned that he is investigating how Frisbee can be installed without changing other things. If I recall rightly, one example is dhcpcd hooks. There are things like that that can be specified at runtime on the 'dhcpcd' commandline, not made as permanent system changes. I presume that is the sort of thing rerwin is looking into.
