Debian accepts hppa for release with Debian 3.0 (woody)!

It is with great pleasure that we announce the acceptance of hppa as an architecture for the upcoming Debian 3.0 stable release, codename woody. Installation tools for hppa are now in the woody tree, and packages now in unstable are beginning to be promoted to the testing/woody tree.

HP Releases 0.9 CD Images!

HP has made a snapshot of the "sid" unstable Debian tree for hppa available as a set of CDROM images. See the release page for more information. This release makes it plausible that the hppa architecture might be ready to release with woody, though there is much work left to do between now and then!

Binary Trees Created

Binary trees for the hppa architecture were added to the 'sid' distribution on Debian's master site today. Bdale is running an auto-builder, and packages should start showing up on Debian mirror sites shortly. Installation info and some critical packages are still available only through the PA-RISC Linux web site, however.

Name Change

At OLS, the issue of using 'parisc' vs 'hppa' for the Debian architecture string was finally decided, in favor of 'hppa'. This ports page is being moved to reflect the change, and a request is in the works to rename the debian-parisc mailing list to debian-hppa.
