    Debian 3.0 released

    Just wanted to let you guys know......

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The Debian Project http://www.debian.org/
    Debian GNU/Linux 3.0 released press@debian.org
    July 19th, 2002 http://www.debian.org/News/2002/20020719
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Debian Project is pleased to announce the release of Debian GNU/Linux
    version 3.0. Debian GNU/Linux is a free operating system, which now
    supports a total of eleven processor architectures, includes KDE and GNOME
    desktop environments, features cryptographic software, is compatible
    with the FHS v2.2 and supports software developed for the LSB.

    With the addition of the IA-64 (ia64), HP PA-RISC (hppa), MIPS (mips,
    mipsel), and S/390 (s390) architectures, Debian GNU/Linux now supports a
    total of eleven architectures. It now runs on computers ranging from
    palmtops to supercomputers, and nearly everything in between, including the
    latest generation of 64 bit machines.

    This is the first version of Debian that features cryptographic software
    integrated into the main distribution. OpenSSH and GNU Privacy Guard are
    included in the default installation, and strong encryption is now present
    in web browsers and web servers, databases, and so forth. Further
    integration of cryptographic software is planned for future releases.

    For the first time, Debian comes with the K Desktop Environment 2.2 (KDE).
    The GNOME desktop environment is upgraded to version 1.4, and X itself is
    upgraded to the much improved XFree86 4.1. With the addition of several
    full-featured free graphical web browsers in the form of Mozilla, Galeon,
    and Konqueror, Debian's desktop offerings have radically improved.

    This version of Debian supports the 2.2 and 2.4 releases of the Linux
    kernel. Along with better support for a greater variety of new hardware
    (such as USB) and significant improvements in usability and stability, the
    2.4 kernel provides support for the ext3 and reiserfs journaling filesystems.

    Debian GNU/Linux 3.0 features a more streamlined and polished installation,
    which is translated into numerous languages. The task system has been
    revamped and made more flexible. The debconf tool makes configuration of
    the system easier and more user friendly. Debian GNU/Linux can be installed
    from CD, or from the network and a few floppies. It can be downloaded now,
    and will soon be available on CD-ROM from numerous vendors
    <http://www.debian.org/CD/>.

    Upgrades to Debian GNU/Linux 3.0 from earlier releases are automatically
    handled by the apt package management tool. As always, Debian GNU/Linux
    systems can be upgraded painlessly, in place, without any forced downtime.
    For detailed instructions about installing and upgrading Debian GNU/Linux,
    please see the release notes
    <http://www.debian.org/releases/woody/releasenotes>.

    This is the first release of Debian that is compatible with version 2.2 of
    the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard (FHS). Debian GNU/Linux now also supports
    software developed for the Linux Standard Base (LSB), though it is not yet
    LSB certified.

    Current Debian users may be interested to know that this release of Debian
    supports build dependencies, to aid in building packages from source, and
    apt pinning, to ease partial upgrades to our testing or unstable branch.
    This release of Debian features aptitude as an alternative for the
    venerable dselect program, which will make it easier to select packages.
    About four thousand new software packages were added to the distribution in
    Debian GNU/Linux 3.0.

    About Debian
    ------------

    Debian GNU/Linux is a free operating system, developed by nearly a thousand
    volunteers from all over the world who collaborate via the Internet.
    Debian's dedication to Free Software, its non-profit nature, and its open
    development model make it unique among GNU/Linux distributions.

    The Debian project's key strengths are its volunteer base, its dedication
    to the Debian Social Contract, and its commitment to provide the best
    operating system possible. Debian 3.0 is another important step in that
    direction.

    Re:Debian 3.0 released

    excellent stuff,

    According to www.debianplanet.org the new testing is called "sarge" & sid remains as unstable. Wonder how long till kde3 & a few other goodies make it into testing.

    Thanks for the linkage, I am off to change my sources.list before I start randomly upgrading packages.

    Regards

    ed

    it's probably outdated already

    would be nicer if it had the KDE 3.x.x and GNOME 2.0 dont you think?

    Re:Debian 3.0 released

    Debian is a nice distro, but it's horribly outdated, and he only way to make up for that is to run "unstable" which kinda defeats the major upside of running Debian. As a former Debian user this took me a while to figure out, because it's easy to get blinded by the coolness of dpkg and apt-get.

    Debian' main force for me is their commitment to the community, and their effort to port applications to other arch. but as a distro I'm affraid Debian stable is only suited for server usage.

    Plus Debian is no fun if you don't have a decent internet connection.

    Re:Debian 3.0 released

    i just did #apt-get upgrade debian
    and it was a 15 minute DL on the cable isp cox.net
    it couldnt be easier.
    can you imagine upgrading 600 packages using rpms?
    i <3 deb, but i still wanna try kde 3 and gnome 2
    so im gonna try deb3 for awhile to see how buggy it is,
    then try dist-upgrade for kde3 and gnome2. :-)

    I think I'm going to have to 'smite' you for some of those comments.

    1. The purpose of Debian 'Stable' is to produce a stable, relatively secure distro with as few defects as possible.
    2. Stable is supposed to be run on servers (just tell apt to grab the security updates and really, you won't have to do much else for a long time).
    3. Most people who use Debian as a desktop OS use Unstable; we prefer the newest stuff (or at least, the newest stuff available to us. If necessary, we can still compile our own programs).
    4. Most people use 'stable' as a starting point for installations, because they know what they're getting.
    5. I like to think of Debian as the OpenBSD of the Linux world; the devs try to make sure that their official stable distributions are secure, stable, and usable on servers. They even go the extra mile and let the average users access the 'unstable' branch, which is probably updated more frequently (and may have more programs) than the OpenBSD ports.

    Debian' main force for me is their commitment to the community, and their effort to port applications to other arch. but as a distro I'm affraid Debian stable is only suited for server usage.
    I can't really disagree with that, but I don't see what you're so upset about. So what if the stable version of Debian is only good for servers!? Some companies would kill to have people say that about their distros.

    Plus Debian is no fun if you don't have a decent internet connection.
    I have a 56k modem and it works fine for me. I can upgrade from Potato to Sid in less than 24 hours.

    I can't say that I can even get certain distros (Gentoo, LFS, etc.) installed within a 24 hour period, much less running KDE or X.

    Re:Debian 3.0 released

    I stand corrected... Debian is no fun on 56K by Danish standards, where we pay by the minute(24 hours dist-upgrade is no fun, trust me)

    And don't get me wrong I use Debian as my desktop OS for quite some time, and I liked it a lot but SID seemed to break more often than Mandrake on my PC, but Debian remains my server OS of choice.

    Feel free to smite me, as you can see on my karma rating, people can't really decide weither they like me or not.

    while I'm at it, I heard that the debian crowd was finally going to write a GUI installer, is this true ?
