Start64!The Debian Installer team had the pleasure of announcing on March 27 that the second Release Candidate (RC) version of the Debian 8.0 "Jessie" installer is now available for download and testing. The RC2 version of the installer brings a great number of improvements and fixes.

Debian 8 Jessie Installer RC2 now enables the GRUB beep at boot for blind users, keeps track of even more packages in Built-Using, addresses issues with the default keyboard layout for many languages, fixes a possible segfault when installing Debian 8 on armel/armhf hardware, and removes the pm-utils package from the laptop and desktop tasks.
