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...
The Debian Installer Team announces that Debian Installer Jessie Beta 1 has been released and is now available for download. The Debian installer seems like a big deal, but in fact it's just a way to install Debian without all the Live perks.
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.
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.
The Debian Installer Team has announced that Debian Installer Jessie Beta 2 is out and ready for download. This latest version brings some very interesting changes for Jessie and a ton of improvements.
The Debian installer is always launched first, so if you want to test the latest Debian 8 version, you will have to install it.
