12 The Debian Installer team announced the first beta release of the
13 installer for Debian 7.0 <q>Wheezy</q>. This new release includes
14 various improvements in different areas, like booting, Linux kernel, APT,
15 low memory installs, and networking. It also uses the new official theme
16 <q>Joy</q>. The installer supports 73 languages, of which 56 are fully translated.
17 All the changes are listed in the Debian Installer team's
18 <a href="$(DEVEL)/debian-installer/News/2012/20120804">announcement</a>
19 to the Debian community.

22 The team asks Debian users to help in testing and improving this new
23 version of the installer: while there are some
24 <a href="$(DEVEL)/debian-installer/errata">known
25 issues</a> with the installer that do not need to be reported, it is very
26 important to try the installer in order to find all possible bugs before
27 the release.
28 </p>
29 <p>
30 Problems should be reported as an
31 <a href="http://www.debian.org/releases/stable/amd64/ch05s04.html#submit-bug">installation
32 report</a>.
33 <br />

35 <a href="http://bugs.debian.org/upgrade-reports">upgrade-reports</a> and
36 <a href="http://bugs.debian.org/installation-reports">installation-reports</a>
37 pseudopackages or by proposing texts for problems, which should be documented in the
38 <a href="http://bugs.debian.org/release-notes">release-notes</a>.
39 Installer CDs, other media and everything else you will need to install
40 Debian on one of the thirteen architectures supported, are
