Hello Robert!

I've just finished a quite extensive remaster of the new DSL 4.3. The remaster includes: flex-bison-libtool, gnu-utils, gcc1-with-libs and I also compiled the GNU debugger into it from source-code etc. It seems to work well so thanks for all your hard work with this release!

As always have fun out there,
meo

- off-topic, but you should try compile-3.3.5 one of these days :)

cool release! will be trying it soon

Edit:
hmm, first thing i see is that 60%/70% of the taskbar is dominated by buttons with text. plz remove that text! text is for the menu, not for simple quickstart buttons.

It's a beautiful thing!
