Users that have installed Bodhi 3 RC3 have to re-install or a simple dist-upgrade is enough to enjoy stable Bodhi 3?
Ditto, but with RC2.

Awesome news. Now I will start installing this all over the place.
In reading the announcement, I would like to suggest trying to differentiate the site links from the regular text a bit more. Maybe it's because I'm on Windows at the moment (web fonts seem thinner), but it takes a bit of a closer look to tell what's a link and what isn't. (Especially for the 'here' links inline.) Maybe bold or underline them, or just make the color a bit brighter? Might be helpful to colorblind folks to make a clearer difference, too.

I thought the official release was not till Friday? Some sites are already pointing to your last "sanity check" builds as the "final" bodhi 3.0 and this annoucement seems to encourage that?
To help avoid confusion from posts like this I moved up the release to this morning. The discs have been ready for awhile now and we were mostly waiting on site updates. Since the main server move went well yesterday I went ahead and called things ready. There are still some small things to do around the forums/wiki but it is all functional in the current state at least.

Nice, will be installing this on my notebook as soon as I get hold of a external HD somewhere
One question: I have a Hp mini 210 netbook, wich is not very old. But is not very powerful (1GB ram and a 1.66GHz Atom N450)
Would you recommend the legacy version or the 32bit version with e17 for optimum speed?
Bodhi 3.1.1 32bit with Moksha 0.2

If you are unsure I'd always recommend giving the normal 32bit release a try. If E19 runs slowly you can always change to E17 without reinstalling by following the directions here -> http://www.bodhilinu...nment-versions/

@Jeff. Is the issue with having no virtual terminals via ctrl/alt/f1...f6 finally resolved with this final release? And if so do i need to reinstall (i'm on rc2 atm and everything works fine exept having no terminal by pressing ctrl/alt/f1) or is there a quick fix?
Thanks in advance for doing a great job to bring bodhi a step further.

Virtual terminals are working by default as of the RC3 release.
We are unable to push out the fix automatically as an update though due to how the issue was created (remastersys issue that has since been fixed).
You can fix the issue yourself though by creating the file /etc/init/tty1.conf with the contents:
# tty1 - getty # # This service maintains a getty on tty1 from the point the system is # started until it is shut down again. start on stopped rc RUNLEVEL= and ( not-container or container CONTAINER=lxc or container CONTAINER=lxc-libvirt) stop on runlevel [!2345] respawn exec /sbin/getty -8 38400 tty1
After creating that file you will need to reboot for it to take effect.

Thanks again @Jeff. Now at least i have tty1 working which is fine with me. Out of interest are tty2...6 working on the point release? Then maybe i have to go from scratch (no biggie for me, not much tweaking is done yet by me)

Ah thanks again, i got the point now. No need to reinstall
