Damn Small Linux 2.1 has been released

After three release candidates, version 2.1 of DSL is released.
The release announcement says:

Well, we have 31 improvements for DSL 2.1. It has been a big effort involving several members of the community. On the interface side we have a lot of nice Lua-FLTK tools including an icon management and settings tool by Robert and a very handy UCI mount/unmount tool written by Mikshaw. Robert also revised a bunch of his scripts including the wordview GUI and our 'System Stats' GUI.
