+      <h1>BLFS 6.3 Release Notes</h1>
+         <p>BLFS version 6.3 is the complement to the LFS 6.3 book. It has been
+         15 months since the last release of BLFS and almost nine months since LFS-6.3
+         was released. Though we would like to release BLFS versions as quickly as
+         possible after an LFS release, this version lagged a bit due to Editor
+         inactivity. However, early on in 2008 several new Editors were brought on
+         board which helped stimulate a flurry of activity.  Many new packages have
+         been introduced in the 6.3 version, as well as many updates, refinements and
+         additions to the existing packages.</p>
+
+         <p>The BLFS book now provides build and configuration instructions for
+         almost 500 packages (many more than that if you want to count each individual
+         package in the autotooled X Window instructions). Some of the new packages
+         introduced in this version are:
+         Dash, ksh, D-Bus bindings, Wireshark (formerly named Ethereal), rxvt-unicode,
+         Gutenprint (formerly name Gimp-Print), Pidgin (formerly name Gaim), GnuTLS
+         (and many of its dependencies), Qt version 4.x, GnuPG version 2.x, and
+         Amarok. Major updates include GNOME-2.18.3 (with several new GNOME packages),
+         KDE-3.5.9, Firefox-2.x, Thunderbird-2.x, and most (if not all) of the
+         mainline server packages. As always, the list of packages that have been
+         upgraded or added as well as configuration and build command changes are
+         annotated in the ChangeLog.</p>
+
+         <p>As always, the main thrust of BLFS development will be to support
+         the changes in the current LFS development book, but we're releasing this
+         version of BLFS so that builders of the stable LFS book can continue on
+         into BLFS with known good instructions that should be 100% compatible to
+         provide a semi current and very stable Linux platform.</p>
+
+         <p>Enjoy!</p>
