This announcement post is being done from a remastered Ubuntu 8.04 install that was directly installed from the cd like the original Ubuntu livecd!

For those interested in the road to 2.0-5, here is the rest of the changelog:

2.0-4 - fixed issue with some system for creating livecd user
- added further cleanup of /var for the dist version livecd

if it isn't then they have tried to backup too much data and the iso couldn't be created

2.0-3 - fixed issue with user creation if running dist after backup
- changed boot method for livecd to graphical grub
