Release

BigBlueButton 2.5.0-beta.1 released!

Just sharing this announcement

We are pleased to announce BigBlueButton 2.5.0-beta.1!

This beta iteration of BigBlueButton 2.5 includes some packaging and configuration improvements and several fixes. It also includes an upgrade of Tomcat to mitigate any danger of Spring Framework Remote Code Execution (CVE-2022-22965) by upgrading Tomcat**

Note that BBB 2.3.x and BBB 2.4.x (the maintained versions) are safe, see #14719

At this point we're “feature complete” for BBB 2.5.x Switching to “beta” to iterate with increased focus on testing and clean up bugs. Development is moved on to the next release, BBB 2.6, with pull requests targeting branch 'develop' until we branch out into 'v2.6.x-release' when it's time for 2.6.0-alpha.1

Note that it runs on Ubuntu Focal (20.04). If you have a BigBlueButton version earlier than alpha.5, please check the alpha.5 release notes as they contain imporant information on upgrading.

The full release notes can be found on https://github.com/bigbluebutton/bigbluebutton/releases/tag/v2.5.0-beta.1

TeX Live 2022 is now available. This is the latest release of the popular LaTeX typesetting system, software, related software, packages, documentation and other related material(s).

Please give it a day or so, so that mirrors can be populated etc.

Bullseye Presentation

A few years ago, I found that there was not an up-to-date presentation for the upcoming release of Debian at the time. I therefore set about creating one.

This is now an ongoing project, my personal remit is to keep this updated by researching information about the upcoming release(s) of Debian. The next release is Debian 11 (Bullseye) as this is now frozen then I am working on the update.

Presentation is in Beamer, which is a LaTeX package for creating presentations. I am however using Overleaf to create the document.

I am on IRC (oftc) as zleap if anyone wants to discuss further. I will also be at the DebConf Planning meeting on the 24th.
