Debian 8.0 “Jessie” Installer RC3 Has Been Released

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Debian 8.0 “Jessie” Installer RC 3 has been released today, the stable version being scheduled for release on the 25th of April, 2015.

It adds the below changes, to the previous RC:

  • apt-setup: Stop enabling backports by default
  • clock-setup: Disable e2fsck superblock time check if RTC is set to local time
    choose-mirror: Refresh mirrors list (now includes httpredir.debian.org as an
    official replacement of http.debian.net).
  • debian-installer: Restore shortcuts (install, installspk, expert, menu, etc.) on
    help screens
  • flash-kernel: Bump u-boot-tools to Recommends, so that network connectivity is
    no longer needed during hd-media installs on several armel, armhf, and arm64 platforms
  • hw-detect: Improve missing firmware detection to avoid false positives once firmwares have been loaded
  • netcfg: Fix hang with DHCPv6 stateful addressing
  • partman-target: Don’t add any extra USB devices to /etc/fstab
  • systemd: Avoid duplicate entries in 70-persistent-net.rules

As a reminder, Debian 8.0 Jessie is the first Debian system to replace the sysVinit event manager with Red Hat’s systemd.
