Debian Edu Squeeze release, 6.0.4 edu r0, 2012-03-11

The announcement is being prepared at svn+ssh://svn.debian.org/svn/publicity/announcements/en/2012/2012-03-11-debian-edu-squeeze.wml so that we gain the benefit of translations from the awesome debian-publicity team. every DD has write access to this repo (and others can get it on request, I believe).

The new features chapter in the manual also needs some editing ;-) (and will then need translations... so this needs to be done very soon.)

Third Debian Edu Squeeze based release candidate, 6.0.4 edu rc3, 2012-03-04

We are very happy to announce "Debian Edu Squeeze 6.0.4 rc3", as we believe this is very very close to what we will release as r0 soon! See below for 6.0.4 r0 and 6.0.4 r1 release schedules!

Debian Edu aka Skolelinux is a Linux distribution based on Debian providing an out-of-the box environment of a completely configured school network. It contains setup for a school server, PXE booting for diskless machines, setup for installing stationary workstations and setup for workstations that can be taken away from the school network.

Several educational applications like celestia, drgeo, gcompris, geogebra, kalzium, kgeography solfege and kgeography are included in the default desktop setup.

More information about Debian Edu is available at http://maintainer.skolelinux.org/debian-edu-doc/en/debian-edu-squeeze-manual.html#AboutDebianEdu - Please note that this manual has been translated to various languages.

Those who already are using rc1 or rc2 can upgrade to this version using for example apt-get upgrade. Users upgrading from beta3 must make sure to keep the existing gosa.conf file for everything to keep working as expected when dpkg ask how to handle the changed file during upgrade.

Complete download and installation instructions are available at http://maintainer.skolelinux.org/debian-edu-doc/en/debian-edu-squeeze-manual.html#Installation

Read the "Getting Started" chapter of the manual to learn how to login for the first time. http://maintainer.skolelinux.org/debian-edu-doc/en/debian-edu-squeeze-manual.html#GettingStarted

Please file bugs on any issues you find, and (probably somewhat additionally) also mention those bugs and issues on our status page at http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEdu/Status/Squeeze

Testing and giving feedback to debian-edu@lists.debian.org or #debian-edu on irc.debian.org is a very good way to start contributing! Act now :-D

If you can do more, give the manual linked to above some love. It needs it.

Release schedule:

2012-03-11: release Debian Edu (r0) Squeeze 6.0.4 
2012-03-25: r0 rc1
2012-04-01: release Debian Edu (r1) Squeeze 6.0.4 

We might decide to aim for March 31st for edu r1, if you don't take this serious ;-p

From February 2012, Debian Lenny will not receive security updates anymore. So by then, Debian Edu Squeeze _should_ be available as an upgrade option as well as for new installations! In other words: we have work to do. Now!

But please bear in mind, that there will be _nobody_ fixing bugs, writing documentation, doing translations or doing any other work - unless *you* do it!

Subject: Debian Edu/Skolelinux 6.0.0 alpha1 test release

This is the second test release based on Squeeze. The focus of this release is the thin clients and the diskless workstation setup. Please install a thin client server, and make sure all programs in the KDE menu work on both thin clients and diskless workstations. Especially sound is important to test.

It is also useful to check that the language specific set of packages installed for your language are sufficient and correct.

The Gnome and LXDE desktop options (enabled by specifying desktop=gnome or desktop=lxde on the isolinux boot prompt) need more testing. Please let us know if the set of installed packages make sense for these environments.

To: debian-edu-announce (at) lists.debian.org, debian-edu (at) lists.debian.org, debian-devel-announce (at) lists.debian.org
Subject: Debian Edu/Skolelinux 6.0.0 alpha0 test release

This is the first test release based on Squeeze. The focus of this release is to test the user application selection. To have a look, install the standalone profile and let the developers know if the set of installed packages i.e. applications should be modified. If some user application is missing, or if there are some applications that no longer make sense to be included in Debian Edu, please let us know. Also, if a useful application is missing the translation for your language of choice, please let us know too.

In addition, feedback and help to polish the desktop (menus, artwork, starters, etc.) is appreciated. We would like to ship a nice and handy KDE4 desktop targeted for schools out of the box.

The other profiles should be installable, but there is a lot more work left to be done before they are ready, so do not expect to much.

After months of hard work, a new Skolelinux multi architecture (amd64, i386 and powerpc) netinstall CD is ready. This is the first test CD preparing for a Debian/Lenny based release. It is available from FTP, HTTP and rsync. The CD image size is about 606 MiB.

Some features are still not working as they should. We are aware of these at the moment:

This is the fifth release candidate of debian-edu etch. After the release of rc4 there have been some new reports about critical bugs which were unknown before. Thanks to this testing there have also been fixes and changes made since rc4. Because of that, we like to present one more and hopefuly the last release candidate. With this common test ground, we would like to ask you for doing all kind of final testing. So please file bugs at http://bugs.skolelinux.org/ now, if you see any problems. We are especially interested in reports about upgrades from the sarge based version of Debian-Edu. If you do not have hardware available to test on, please have a look at http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEdu/HowTo/TestCDinstall for hints about to test without.

Test release candidate 4, 2007-07-08

This is the fourth release candidate of debian-edu etch. Even though it was planned to release the final version after rc3, it was decided to release (at least) one more release candidate. The reason for that is, that some critical bugs have been fixed and some new features and changes have been implemented. So please file bugs at http://bugs.skolelinux.org/ now, if you see any problems. If you do not have hardware available to test on, please have a look at http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEdu/HowTo/TestCDinstall to learn about ways to test without hardware.

Even if we did not hold the promise to release within 1.5 weeks after rc3, we still plan to release soon.
