Notes from the Developers:

Persistence: After a long development we finally integrated full Persistence features in Elive with a guided and friendly way to setup it, so you don’t need to create partitions or any configurations and even encryption is included in a fully automated way. This feature is custom made which includes: Statistics usage. An automated cleaning of the temporal and unneeded files when the partition becomes full. The desktop settings are saved in unique profiles based on machine identificators, which improves the compatibility of your portable Elive among machines like the special font sizes or rendering options. Persistence has been a well waited feature and we wanted to integrate it in an optimal way, so here it is! It would have been sad to not include it for the next major stable release :).
