* Updated bzImage for smaller size (upx'ed)
* Updated rebuildfstab to drop extra mount points.
* New select utility replaces dialog
* Dropped dialog, use dialog.tcz extension (posted)
* Updated xsetup.sh
* Updated mktclocal
* Updated tc-terminal-server
* Updated missing link libpng.so
* Updated blkid, libblkid, and libuuid
* Dropped cryptohome support.
* Busybox mount and losetup replace GNU versions

Notes:
Be sure to update your kernel with new smaller, faster booting, bzImage
I decided to drop dialog as it is quite big and only used by three
programs, which are rarely used. Also, dialog screen gets
easily messed up when booting with xsetup. Cryptohome dropped was a team decision.

Note also; the distribution files are also availble:
