First and foremost, RapidDisk 2.1b is now released and available. Second, the RapidDisk LX project is now listed as part of the Open Invention Network. Third, I just uploaded an initial RapidDisk LX 1.0 alpha release image to the project website.

A few exciting things to report:

First and foremost, RapidDisk 2.1b is now released and available. You can check it out from the project's git repo (reference http://rapiddisk.org/index.php?title=Download_and_Installati... for details on download) You can also view the release's Changelog here: http://rapiddisk.org/index.php?title=Changelog . To those interested, I will be uploading a tarball on Sourceforge by this coming weekend.

Second, the RapidDisk LX (http://lx.rapiddisk.org) project is now listed as part of the Open Invention Network (http://openinventionnetwork.com/) to help promote innovation within its respective industry. I imagine that the project will be posted on the network's official site (under Community of Licensees) within the next week. RapidDisk LX is a custom ARM-based Linux distribution built entirely out of source and inspired by the Cross Linux From Scratch project. Its main and only purpose is to provide RapidDisk functionality as a SCSI Target over a Storage Area Network (SAN).

Third, I just uploaded an initial RapidDisk LX 1.0 alpha release image to the project website. Please read everything on the distro's page before using in Qemu: http://lx.rapiddisk.org. Note that everything has been tested except for the iSCSI Target stuff. You may need to play around with the Qemu network settings a bit before you can get it to work. If you figure this out before me, then please let me know. Also if you find any bugs or any details missing, please do not hesitate to submit them to the project's bug tracker: http://bugs.rapiddisk.org.

Two weekends ago, I also submitted RapidDisk LX to DistroWatch and it is currently in their waiting list (see entry for 2012-03-26 at the bottom of the page: http://distrowatch.com/dwres.php?resource=links#new).
