The ReactOS team is proud to announce the release of ReactOS 0.3.10.  
This version is the first to use the Universal ATA driver as the  
default disk driver, adding support for Serial ATA and partitions  
greater than 8GB. In addition, recent work was done on the USB stack  
to increase compatibility with USB keyboards and mice. These features  
are still under heavy development and have several known bugs, but  
their inclusion should allow more people to run ReactOS on real  
hardware and are part of the extensive work to make ReactOS usable as  
an every day operating system.

Apart from that, ReactOS made it into the final round of the  
SourceForge Community Choice Awards. If you like it, you can vote for  
us ( https://sourceforge.net/community/cca09/vote/?f=431 ) in the  
categories Best Project, Best Project for Government and Most Likely  
to Change the Way you Do Everything

Along with the rest of the 0.3 series, this release is still  
considered alpha quality software so it may not run all your apps or  
run on your hardware.

A detailed consolidation of all changes can be found in the changelog  
( http://www.reactos.org/wiki/index.php/ChangeLog-0.3.10 ). A sum up  
of some of the more important changes is as follows:

     * Fixed inability to work with partitions bigger than 8Gb
     * Added possibility of installing into any of four primary  
     * Initial support for SerialATA controllers along with enhanced
