1. New UPR-Kernel
The UPR-Kernel was able to mount some RAID-Arrays, because the
controllers are identified by the system as a SCSI-controller, even if
(S)-ATA-Disks are used. For UPR this is a security issue, because
removing the ability of mounting local S-/ATA-Disks is part of the
concept to seal off users to assure their privacy.
From the new Kernel we removed support for
* all SCSI/IDE/SATA/SAS RAID-controllers
* Fibre Chanel Controller

2. Security Updates adopted from Ubuntu
All Ubuntu Security Updates released since the last release until
20081202 are added.

3. The DTP-Program Scribus was added to UPR.
Scribus-settings are now stored in "extended Truecrypt Volumes"

4. Added saving the /dektop/pgp-branch
