Some may have thought Edubuntu was kind of dead, especially after changing its name to become an Add-on, these days are over and we are happy to announce that it’s now a full distribution again and is provided as a DVD image.

The biggest changes for this release are:

  • Moving to a DVD image
  • LTSP installation working from the DVD (text mode)
  • Live (ready to use) environment with possibility to install
  • LTSP-Cluster is now packaged in Universe
  • Sabayon is working again

The release announcement can be found on the Edubuntu website along with download information: here.

It’s now time to celebrate Ubuntu’s and its derivative’s latest release, then we can start thinking of what to work on for 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) which will be a Long Term Support release.

I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who was involved in creating that great release and helped getting Edubuntu back to what it was if not even better. I’m sure that in the next 6 months, we’ll achieve a lot more.

An Ubuntu OpenWeek session is planned on Thursday the 5th of November at 19:00 UTC on IRC (#ubuntu-classroom) where I’ll try to explain how to get involved in that great community and what are our plans for the release to come.
