Steve McIntyre has relayed that the Debian camp is "Ready for Jessie!" and that the debian-cd team is happy with the state of the debian-installer and related packages for the Debian 8.0 Jessie release.

In particular, Debian 8.0 Jessie is now in great shape with its EFI enhancements for supporting modern systems, there's now Debian OpenStack images for AMD64, the Debian-Live images are good to go, and with the Jessie release there's new architectures of ARM64 and PowerPC 64-bit EL (PPC64EL).

After the Debian Installer went through a few Jessie release candidates, Debian 8.0 is ready for release on April 25, this Saturday. More of today's debian-cd information bits passed along by Steve McIntyre can be found via this mailing list post.
