That's why I updated it. I see that there are many updates in archiso
(besides the removal of i686), which I'll see if they should be included
in Parabolaiso.

our developers tools deserve a place in our repositories, in that case
we would remove libretools too, and packagers would have to compile it

I remember, I'll look for a solution, so we can have updated graphical ISOs.
