-===== Warning ​===== +===== Release Manager ​===== 
-PLD 3.0 is currently in an early stage of development so even quite radical changes are to be expected+Jan Rękorajski (baggins at pld linux org) is the current RM
-===== Changes ​=====+===== Current status ​===== 
 +PLD th is stable, in endless development. No releases are planned, but irregular snaphots are going to be made, main repository is constantly updated, but you can consider main th repository as stable distribution.

-Support for Alpha, SPARC and i386 wasn't completely dropped, but those architectures will not be part of mainstream ​development. Additional information will be available ​at a later date+

-==== Directory structure ​==== +==== Separate debuginfo ​==== 
-In Th, RPMs can always be found under ''​th/​$treename/​$architecture/​RPMS/​'' ​directoryCurrently "​PLD" ​and "​test"​ trees will be used (most users will probably want to stay away from the latter) and "​upgrades-*" trees **might** be used after Th's official releaseDo note, that the "​ready"​ tree known from PLD 2.0 will **not** be used in any way that would make it usable ​to users (assuming ​it will be used at all)+In PLD Th introduces debuginfo packages (detached debug info for gdb and friends). In Th all package debuginfo are kept under paths corresponding to their target architectures as ''​debuginfo''​. ​This allows smaller poldek indexes meaning poldek likely works faster ​and perhaps happier mirror maintainers. See [[http://​​mailman/​pipermail/​pld-devel-en/​2009-April/​020948.html|this]] mailing list post to see how it all started

-Th contains, among many other, the following fresh packages+In Th, RPMs can always be found under ''​th/​$treename/​$architecture/​RPMS/''​ directory. Currently "​PLD"​ and "​test"​ trees will be used (most users will probably want to stay away from the latter) and The "​ready"​ tree is known place as for RM to push packages ​to main tree, you can consider packages being in ready soon to be in "​PLD"​ tree.  
 +==== Packages ====
 +RPM packages are compressed using LZMA/XZ, which results in both substantially smaller file sizes and faster decompression. ​
