Infrared applet has been removed. Also, "Color Management" tab has been added to Display Properties.

Other changes[edit | edit source]
- "Starting..." boot message has been updated to mention Memphis instead of Windows 95.
- "Suspend" button has been added to Start menu.

Bugs[edit | edit source]
Installation[edit | edit source]
ltimesbd.ttffiles are missing in this build’s installation media, making them impossible to install normally without modification.
ACPI[edit | edit source]
ACPI support is in very early development and crashes easily. Turn off ACPI or setup can crash during hardware setup with a red screen of death (used in early builds for ACPI errors).
