Debian Etch Released

Written by BinnyVA on April 9, 2007 – 2:45 am -


After a long delay and many problems, the debian team has finally released the fourth version of this very popular distro. Named Debian Etch, this new release will have a lot of new features like a new Graphical Installer, many new applications, etc.

Using a now fully integrated installation process, Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 comes with out-of-the-box support for encrypted partitions. This release introduces a newly developed graphical frontend to the installation system supporting scripts using composed characters and complex languages; the installation system for Debian GNU/Linux has now been translated to 58 languages.

I have been waiting for this for some time. I will review this distro as soon as I get my hands on it – that is after we have downloaded it. The guys in my local LUG group(ILug-Cochin) are going to be very exited :-) | Digg it | reddit | StumbleUpon
