Debian Edu/Skolelinux 6.0.3 beta1 test release


I am happy to finally announce "Debian Edu Squeeze 6.0.3 beta1"!

Complete download and installation instructions are available at 

Read the "Getting Started" chapter of the manual to learn how to login for the 
first time: 

Please file bugs on any issues you find, and (probably somewhat additionally) 
also mention those bugs and issues on our status page at 

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 

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 some love. It needs it.


Changes compared to alpha0, alpha1 and lenny version

    * Everything that's new in Squeeze compared to Lenny

The following features are not working as they should
