Trisquel 8 is almost ready, and we've got a full set of Release Candidate ISO
images for testing at http://jenkins.trisquel.info/makeiso/iso/RC/
These latest images should have fixed all the issues some of us had with
bootable USB drives and untimely initramfs prompts. They also include of
course all the recent functional and freedom fixes and the new artwork.
If no release-blocking bugs (i.e., something that renders these images
unusable for someone or new freedom issues) are found, we'll proceed with the
release on Monday 16. That gives us a full week for testing and feedback and
also for fixing an small but relevant issue I'll write about below.
Please test these images for those release-blocking bugs and have in mind
that we'll try to work on the rest of the old and new non-critical pending
issues right after the public release. We'll also share our plan for the
soon-to-be started Trisquel 9 development with the Flidas announcement.
One issue that we'll be fixing this week is the implementation of proper
translation hooks for the new Abrowser homepage privacy settings. We'll also
include some translations (it's currently only available in English) with the
help of several community members, and we'll share the details for adding
more languages to this increasingly relevant component later.
Thanks all for your help!
