Release Update

Marc Brockschmidt reported about the status of the upcoming stable release. After some major transitions, like the ocaml transition Lenny is in good shape, but still a lot of work needs to be done. Since the armel architecture made great improvements the release team decided to upgrade it to a proper release architecture.
Regarding Lenny the Qt/KDE Packaging Team decided that the upcoming release will be shipped with KDE 3.5.9 (and with the KDE 4.1 development platform: kde4libs, kdepimlibs and kdebase-runtime).

First Jessie based Debian Edu beta release

Hi, the Debian Edu / Skolelinux project is pleased to announce the first *beta* release of Debian Edu "Jessie" 8.0+edu0~b1, which for the first time is composed entirely of packages from the current Debian stable release, Debian 8 "Jessie".

The release is still in progress but should finish later today ;) We expect to make a final release of Debian Edu "Jessie" in the coming weeks, timed with the first point release of Debian Jessie. Upgrades from this beta release of Debian Edu Jessie to the final release will be possible and encouraged! Read more
