Known Issues

Support for Wifi WPA security in the default network configuration was only added after the release for 24.6.

Due to the nature of all cross compiled base install ISOs, gobject-introspection is not installed by default and some packages need to be natively, locally rebuilt for some advanced gnome-desktop packages.
