Re: Debian accessibility news

Title: signature_jp_2


Of course, it is possible. Just change jessie to testing in you sources.list and apt-get update then apt-get dist-upgrade

Be careful: it may be long as many packages will be updated, and it may cause some little problems if you have a twickde system, but it should go fine, I tried on a new Jessie two days ago.

Is there a way to upgrade to stretch without having to totally reinstall my entire system?  I'm working with Jessie now using the mate desktop
environment.  It isn't the testing release.  If a total system install is required, I'll probably just stick with what I've got, especially since I've
got my hardware synths working on it.

Just a few news items:

- I should have pointed it out earlier: with Debian Stretch being
  released, accessibility is now enabled by default.  This means that
  notably, on a Debian system running the gnome desktop, you just
  need to press super-alt-s.  There is no need to click some "enable
  accessibility" checkbox and re-login any more.  This will also better
  expose the accessibility stack to developers, so they can themselves
  notice issues with it.

- The a11y bug tracker tag was added, which we can now use to track down
  the accessibility issues.

- The accessibility::* debtags were added.  One can now contribute them
  on debtags.debian.org.  This will allow to do apt-cache searches with
  filtering packages which have explicitly been marked as being

- Just as a reminder, packages upload & bugs will stop being sent to
  this list, but instead to pkg-a11y-devel@lists.alioth.debian.org ,
  which you can subscribe to from
