While Debian 7.8 was released this weekend, for those living on the bleeding edge the release candidate of the installer for the upcoming Debian 8.0 "Jessie" release is now available.

I've yet to see an official release announcement concerning the Debian Installer 8.0/Jessie RC1, but a focused Phoronix reader found the CD images available. All of the release candidate images are up including the x86, x86_64, ARM, and 64-bit ARM images for Debian GNU/Linux 8.0 Jessie. Also still churning is the x86 and x86_64 versions of Debian GNU/kFreeBSD that pack in the Jessie user-land atop the FreeBSD 10.1 kernel.

Stay tuned for more Debian 8.0 Jesie news in the next few weeks as the developers try to release it before FOSDEM, which is coming up quite quickly.
