New features in Debian Edu Buster

New features for Debian Edu 10+edu0 Codename Buster

Known issues

Installation changes

  • New version of debian-installer from Debian Buster, see its installation manual for more details.

  • New artwork based on the ?XXX theme, the default artwork for Debian 10 Buster.

  • New CFEngine configuration management (replacing unmaintained package cfengine2 with cfengine3); this is a major change, for details see the official CFEngine documentation.

  • New default desktop environment Xfce (replacing KDE).
  • The architecture of the LTSP chroot now defaults to the server one.

Software updates

  • Everything which is new in Debian 10 Buster, eg:
    • Linux kernel XXX
    • Desktop environments KDE Plasma Workspace XXX, GNOME XXX, Xfce XXX, LXDE XXX, MATE XXX
    • Firefox XXX ESR and Chromium XXX
    • LibreOffice XXX

    • Educational toolbox GCompris XXX
    • Music creator Rosegarden XXX
    • GOsa XXX
    • LTSP XXX
    • Debian Buster includes more than XXX packages available for installation.

Documentation and translation updates

  • Translation updates for the templates used in the installer. These templates are now available in XXX languages.
  • The Debian Edu Buster Manual is fully translated to German, French, Italian, Danish, Dutch, Norwegian Bokmål and Japanese.
    • Partly translated versions exist for Spanish, Polish and Simplified Chinese.

Other changes compared to the previous release

  • The USB ISO image allows offline installations again.
  • Support for running Java applets in the Firefox ESR browser has been dropped upstream.
  • Support for nonfree flash has been dropped from the Firefox ESR browser. We have also decided to drop the free but unmaintained gnash implementation.
  • New GOsa²-Plugin Password Management.

  • Unusable options have been removed from the GOsa² web interface.
  • New netgroup available to exclude systems belonging to the shut-down-at-night-hosts netgroup from being waken up.

  • Improved TLS/SSL support inside the internal network. A RootCA certificate is used to sign server certificates and user home directories are configured to accept it at account creation time; besides Firefox ESR, also Chromium and Konqueror can now use HTTPS without the need to allow insecure connections.
  • With X2Go server now available in Debian, the related packages are now installed on all systems with Profile LTSP-Server.
