Hi all,

we just finished the last bits for the latest issue of Debian Project
News to be released Monday. We would appreciate reviews and translations.

Instructions are available on the wiki:


As usual, the last updated version is available on the publicity
Subversion repository, even via HTTP:


Thanks in advance,

Thank you Francesca and everyone. Here are my remarks:

Cyril Brulebois
<a href="$(HOME)/devel/debian-installer/News/2012/20121018">announced
the third beta release of the Debian Installer 7.0</a>.
One of the major improvements in this version of the Debian Installer is
EFI support for 64-bit PCs, which allows installation in EFI mode
instead of using the legacy BIOS. This is a first step towards
full support for UEFI Secure Boot, which is not yet present.

I don't know what UEFI Secure Boot is, but according to the release announcement:
This does not include any support for UEFI Secure Boot — that will come later.
This seems to contradict the last sentence quoted.

According to the<a href="http://udd.debian.org/bugs.cgi";>Bugs Search
interface of the Ultimate Debian Database</a>, the upcoming release,
Debian<q>Wheezy</q>, is currently affected by 464 Release-Critical bugs.
Although our source is just 4 days old, the count has already varied quite a bit, and in the right direction - only 418 left :-)
