Thats really a lot of progress. Good work. keep going.
Thanks. This will be the last RC for 3.1. Consider it a feature freeze and only bugs will be fixed so we can officially get 3.1 released.
What is "fuse system"? What is the new cheat code "fuse" for?
What exactly is improved for Bootfloppy installs ?
What does this mean ?

I still hope, that I will be able someday to boot from a floppy disk first and second from a write-protected USB-pen without that the system brings an error code. I think you remember my topic for this some weeks/months ago.

Due to this, I didn't do further tests/usages with DSL.

But hopefully, it will work someday.
I always check the change logs.
