Many of you must have noticed it already. The new Granular logo is on & active on the Granular Project website and the soon to be launched Granular Newsletter website. The new logo is a herd of four penguins around a circle (or somewhere around a 'G'). This new logo will star in Esto Vello. The logo is yet to be named.
The logo has been prepared by one of the finest members of the Artwork team -- Joonas Pääkkö a.k.a. SommU. Nice work SommU!

On some investigation, we found that there is some problem in the installer itself which prevents the installation of Granular LInux onto hard-disk. Some of the files related to the installer - draklive-install have been found to be corrupt. The solution to this problem is:
1. Log into Granular Linux through the usual LiveCD mode.
2. Make settings in the Granular Control Center to get connected to the internet.
3. Download the installation fix (patch) from http://www.granularproject.org/files/installation-fix.tar.gz
The Granular Linux website (www.granular-linux.com) may take some time to load. It is due to a server fault on which it is hosted. We are working on to correct the problem and hopefully, it will solve soon. Sorry for the inconvenience.

The next version of Granular Linux would ship with the all new concept of Granular Packages (grl). This concept is aimed at easing the installation of new softwares (packages) in the Granular system of a user. Contrary to the source tar packages, which require to be compiled, built & installed by the end-user, the grl packages are pre-built packages ready to be installed through the granular command-line utility (Granular Installation Tool [GIT]).
Team Granular is looking forward for a brand new logo for Granular Linux and the Granular Project. If you can conceive an apt logo for the both, then you can submit the logo at the Forum under the "Other Artwork" Section.
