Let's face it, guys. The 1.3 beta sucked, and it's time to move on.
Here is a little history:
0.5 was my first fully stable public release, and it rocked. based on fluxbox as a WM, it ws cool, but very very rough.
1.0 got slashdotted before it hit the mirrors, so a lot of people got pissed off, but fuck 'em. Anyone who knows free software knows to pick your own favourite releases as "stable". :)
1.1 was the first Knoppix fork ever (including mainstream Klaus' Knoppix) to use the 2.6 kernel. It was just freaking cool. Period. Enough Said.
So to summarize, keep your drawers on, 1.4 is right down the pipeline. I am not going to promise much, but I will promise a technology refresh of the xmame version and eye-candy for the WM. Most likely I will also give you all a re-write of the remastering utility "addroms". My biggest promise, though, is filesystem support for everything writeable in Linux. this includes captive-ntfs thanks to a fresh fork from Knoppix 3.4. Arcade monitors are still on the back-burner as I don't have hardware to test with, as is the ATI video card driver and PPC support. If you need hardware I don't have to be supported, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or make a paypal donation to get me the the resources needed to make it happen.
Since I am the only developer, good luck getting a release date, but I am shooting for some time in July.

This is the first sourceforge.net hosted release of KnoppiXMAME. - A CD/DVD bootable mini-Knoppix CD for playing X-MAME games portably, or to use for converting an arcade cabinet with minimal cost (a hard drive is not needed). -
The .iso has been shrunk down to 150MB, all programs such as xmame have been moved off the compressed filesystem and onto the CD so a user can replace them as often as new releases of X-MAME come out.
All ALSA ISA cards work automatically now. This is the first Knoppix-based CD to include the new stable kernel 2.6. This dramatically improves game responsiveness and hardware autoconfiguration.
