Hi, I am happy to finally announce "Debian Edu Squeeze 6.0.3 beta1"! Complete download and installation instructions are available at http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEdu/Documentation/Squeeze/Installation Read the "Getting Started" chapter of the manual to learn how to login for the first time: http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEdu/Documentation/Squeeze/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 Also be aware: 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! Testing and giving feedback to email@example.com 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 some love. It needs it. cheers, Holger Changes compared to alpha0, alpha1 and lenny version * Everything that's new in Squeeze compared to Lenny see http://www.debian.org/releases/stable/releasenotes for a full list o linux 2.6.32, kde4, ... * GOsa² implementation fully replaces the formerly used LDAP administration tool lwat o User and group management o Host management, including DHCP/DNS o NIS netgroup management * Kerberized user authentication * NFSv4 instead of NFSv3 * Samba NT4 domain integration, support for Windows XP/Vista/7 as Windows clients in a SKOLELINUX Samba domain * New Debian Edu artwork * (... to be continued ...)
