Several versions are available on the mirrors:

  • i586 & x86_64 for 2008.1 edition
  • international, asia and extra-i18n (you can find the supported languages list for each iso on this page)

Please consider using Bugzilla to file your feature requests instead of this page!

The benefits of using Bugzilla instead of this page should be clear:

  • Bugzilla is meant to track bugs as well as feature requests
  • Discussions on one topic are easily possible and visible in the cooker mailinglist
  • It is possible to vote for feature requests
  • It is possible to use Bugzilla to determine which features should be implemented for which release and track the status of them
  • If you want to see a list of all open feature requests, simply ask Bugzilla

Still, this Wiki page is useful to keep an overview of ideas that have been raised for the next release.
