This is the third release candidate of debian-edu etch. We plan to release the final release soon. So please file bugs at http://bugs.skolelinux.org/ '''now''', if you see problems. Even if you dont have hardware available to test on, you can still help with testing in qemu. The url http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEdu/HowTo/TestCDinstall will help you get started. We know that we are somehow behind our release schedule and we plan to release the final release within 1.5 weeks. Highlights * Improved support for ssh based installation by not changing the network settings at the end of the installation if working network is enabled. * Modified the CD/DVD build system to include architecture specific packages, and use this to include the kernels needed by LTSP on amd64 and powerpc. * Fixed bug in code telling KDE to use esd on thin clients with sound enabled. * Now install scribus and tuxpaint by default in desktop installs. * Enabled sound and local device access on thin clients by default. * Added Hebrew and Japanese support. * Removed the free Flash implementation Gnash, because it is not ready for production use. * Provide the amd64 version as well as a multi arch dvd and a cd (i386) * When installed with the multi arch dvd on amd64, an i386 ltsp environment is created so old hardware could be used with new terminal server. Known issues: * The test program after the install reports an empty error on amd64 * The start pages are not in sync and final translations are under progress * The kde kiosk profile for the students lacks a structured kde start menu The dvd ISO image is 4.4 GiB large.
