[otavio@debian.org: Debian Installer 6.0 Beta2 release]


The beta2 release of the squeeze debian installer is out, please test
it!. Notice one errata item:

Speech synthesis not working in user session
    When installing the desktop task in English with accessibility (braille or
    speech) enabled, sppech synthesis works at the gdm login prompt, but does
    not work in the user session. The workaround is to login in a text console
    and remove the festival package.

reminder: software speech synthesis will not be officially supported for
squeeze, but unofficial images are available on

The Debian Installer team[1] is pleased to announce the second beta
release of the installer for Debian GNU/Linux Squeeze.

This release is dedicated to Frans Pop, who worked as Debian Installer
Release Manager for several years. Even after he stepped out from this
responsibility in 2007, Frans continued to be heavily involved in
several aspects of D-I until he passed away.

Frans played a key role in ensuring that D-I was constantly maintained
at the high quality level that had been set by its original
developers. In particular, Frans kept the Installation Guide in very
good shape throughout the period that he was involved in D-I.

Frans' name will remain associated with Debian Installer, and his loss
is deeply regretted by Debian Installer developers, contributors and
