I downloaded the 5.0.2 core.gz and rebooted. Ran a check for updates in apps but didn't get a notice about Xlibs or Xprogs. Everything seems to work though.

Hi,

fine work tc 5.x.
Indeed tc 5.00 5.01 and 5.02 do not
entirely load into RAM.
you cannot unmount bootmedium
as previous versions did.

None of that is true.
1. Core does load entirely in RAM.
    If you have something not in RAM, then it  is a loop mounted extension, not Core.
2. Boot medium is not mounted during boot.
3. It is impossible for Linux to even know what the boot medium was.
    If you have something mounted at login, you have an extension loop mounted, or have opt or home on the mounted device, or something in bootlocal.sh mounted it.

posibly also use of iso=sdX/tc.iso ? results in mount
previously you could (from *some bootloader)

mount iso from disk
and not need "iso=" option
 or to have anything mounted after kernel and core ...
because wbar ect was included / loaded at boot and not mounted from tcz
however this changed some time in 4x
i think !

The CorePlus ISO does not load the included extensions to RAM as it would mean greatly higher HW requirements for that build. TinyCore does, and Core does not have any extensions on the cd.

The CorePlus change is not exclusive to 5.x IIRC, but already applied in the latest 4.x releases too. If you requre it to load to RAM, you can remaster your ISO.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

FWIW and as indicated on the website, CorePlus is only intended to be an installation CD and not a live CD.
