Preparations for etch RC1 release will break most beta 3 images

October 17th, 2006

Final preparations have begun for the first release candidate of Debian Installer for Etch. The changes to the Debian archive are known to break most of the installation media from etch beta 3. We hope to get RC1 out as soon as possible to fix this.

The only images that should remain usable are the full installation CDs and DVDs. The other CD images are possibly still usable, but that is not guaranteed.

In the meantime, if you need to use one of the other installation methods, use the daily built images. This will also help us with pre-release testing for RC1, so please file installation reports!
