New Debian-Edu/Skolelinux test CD image 2 (test02)

After two months of continuous improving and bug fixing the
Debian-Edu/Skolelinux project is pleased to announce that the next
test release of "Debian-Edu/Skolelinux 3.0 codename terra" is ready.
This is the second test release based on debian/etch. It is
available from FTP, HTTP and rsync.

Here are some of the bug fixes and improvements which were added to the
test release 02.

 * Installer support encrypting disks and partitions
 * Added flash web plugin support using gnash
 * Added the adept graphical package manager
 * Added much used package ktuberling
 * Added sitesummary system to make it easier to keep track of a lot of 
machines in the network.
 * Fixed the NTP configuration.
 * ltsp0.99debian8 (supports encrypted swap and on-demand network swap)
 * KDE upgraded from version 3.5.4 to 3.5.5
 * New artwork (boot splash and KDE wallpaper)
 * Audio device access should work out of the box.
 * X.org upgraded from version 7.0 to 7.1.

Some new features which are not yet fully working, but the framework is 
already in place:
 * Kiosk mode

Some features are still not working as they should. We are aware of these at 
the moment:
 * No LDAP user admin tool yet
 * Hotplugging USB disks do not work
 * Dropped gcompris and gperiodic to save space.

To download it, use either of these methods:

   rsync ftp.skolelinux.org::skolelinux-cd/debian-edu_etch-i386-test02.iso
