A new release for GNU/Linux will be available later this week. It is tagged "MiKTeX Tools 2.8 Beta 2".
MiKTeX-pdfTeX, the MiKTeX variant of the pdfTeX angine, has been ported.
Binary packages (deb/rpm/tgz) are now available for i386 GNU/Linux systems.
The engine features integrated package management: missing packages will be installed on-the-fly (after confirmation).
The binary is installed as miktex-pdftex so that it can coexist with the pdftex binary of the host TeX system.
Binary packages (deb/rpm/tgz) and source code will be released later this week. Keep an eye on the MiKTeX Tools home page (http://miktex.org/unx/).
