Major changes

Better domain performance:
  • Graphical interfaces do not hang when the network in the domain is down.
  • If LDAP remains unresponsive for some time, the connection will be recovered with user privileges.
  • Waiting for the LDAP server when unlocking a domain user's session.
  • Applications are now running faster thanks to LDAP caching.
  • Better response time for LDAP if the latter is unavailable.
  • Network resources are restored automatically when you quit the hibernate or the suspend mode.

  • We fixed the bug that prompted for the password twice to unlock the session.
  • UEFI install bug fixed.
  • Option '--swap-size' added, allowing to specify the size of the swap partition when autopartitioning is enabled.
  • PXE install bug fixed.
  • Domain autologin fixed for the LiveCD.
  • There was a bug that sometimes occured when first booting the system; it is no more.
  • Font settings in Firefox were fixed: all sites are now displayerd correctly.
  • Network and timezone setup fixed for CLD (no more user access denied).
  • Hibernate and suspend modes fixed for CLD.
  • The user idle detection in Pidgin was fixed.
  • Calculate Directory Server and Calculate Scratch Server now install perfectly on any machines with Intel video.
  • No more deleting of Windows 7 users' profiles.

I installed this Version in VirtualBox-4.3.8.

But after installation it doesn´t boot.
I see the Boot-Menu and start ENTER,
but nothing goes.

I think, it is the configuration of the kernel,
the same problem I had with gentoo64 in VirtualBox-4.3.8,
but after changing the kernel-config I could boot it.

VirtualBox-4.3.10 is out.

Now I can install calculate-Linux - problem solved
