Phoronix: Debian Installer Jessie Alpha 1 Released
Today's been a very exciting open-source Linux news day and there's still a lot more to share. The latest surprising news today is the availability of the first alpha installer release for Debian 8.0 Jessie...
With the first alpha release yesterday of the Debian 8.0 installer back when I was briefly in the office, I decided to try out the updated installer and packages for this next Debian release that's under the Jessie codename.
The Debian Installer team has just announced that the first Alpha build of the Debian 8 "Jessie" version is now available for download and testing. The Debian developers are taking their time with each new version of Debian and they are known for releasing very stable builds. This can only be done if all the kinks have been ironed out well before any release.
As announced by Adam Barrat of the Debian Release Team on the project's mailing list on Monday, the Debian developers are now only waiting until all the changes to the distribution caused by the update to Python 2.6 have been integrated.
