For all of you anxious packet monkeys out there, the HeX LiveCD 1.0R will soon be available. We are running through extensive tests and bug fixing excersizes right now, but anticipate releasing this new version within the next week. I'll post an update once released, as well as the standard US mirrors.
This project has also been gaining a good amount of momentum and continued community support. I would like to thank all involved, esp geek00l and chfl4gs_ (the core founders)!
