Debian Weekly News - June 9th, 2008
Welcome to this year's 4th issue of DPN, the newsletter for the Debian community.
Some of the topics covered in this issue:
- Release Update
- Beta-2 of the Lenny Debian Installer released
- Report from LinuxTag 2008
- Call for help by the german translation team
- ... and much more.
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).
