The Linux From Scratch community is pleased to announce the release of
LFS-5.0. This major milestone features a new method with strong emphasis
on building a correct compilation environment and base libraries
independent from the host system. Release 5.0 features the Linux kernel
version 2.4.22, the GNU C Library (glibc) 2.3.2, the GNU Compiler
Collection (gcc) 3.3.1 and a bootloader change from LILO to GRUB,
amongst other package upgrades. The book's explanatory texts have also
been enhanced, providing an even richer learning experience while you
build your own customised, hand-crafted Linux installation.

You can read the book online, or download to read locally at

This marks yet another great leap for Linux From Scratch, and we hope
that it will bring the benefits to more users, sysadmins, and developers
than ever before.
