yellowTAB will release Patch 1 for Zeta today, ZetaNews announces. The patch, some call it Service Pack 1, is to fix several issues in Zeta RC1, as well as provide updates for various applications and processes, further described in IsComputerOn's review of an earlier edition of this patch (also available in French and Japanese). Since the review, several things have been added. The package is several megabytes larger than the reviewed one, because of among others an updated version of Beam and a real long list of added SVG icons.

In addition, Bernd Korz, yellowTAB's CVO, told ZetaJournal this morning that USB2 scanning now works flawlessly under Zeta. He did not say whether this functionality will already be available to the end-user through the patch.
