We have just released Trustix Secure Linux 3.0
The various installation images are available on our normal distribution
sites. For information on how to get the latest and greatest Trustix
Secure Linux, visit the download section of our new web site:
TSL's rapidly expanding new user base has identified a wide range of
possible improvements which have now been implemented and made available
in this release. Foremost amongst these is the new installer "Viper".
Apart from the added ease of use and many new features "Viper" boasts
the ability to poll the latest updates during the installation process.
This ensures that servers deploying TSL will be up to date and secure
right from the first installation - effectively closing the insecurity
window that exists between first installation and the time it takes to
locate, download and implement upgrades.
Other additions to the system include X.org X11 libraries, FreeRadius
support, easy PXE installs, Mini CD and Net CD versions of the OS,
enhanced hardware detection, installation on RAID and logical volumes
and a range of kernel upgrades including the shift to Linux 2.6 kernel
and BASH 3.
Complementing our mission to produce the most reliable server OS
available, Trustix have also made huge strides towards making Linux
easier to configure and administrate. Server automation tools such as
CP+ facilitate the quick and easy, web based administration of your
dedicated TSL based server - simplifying the usually complex management
of tasks such as Samba file sharing, MySQL databases, firewall
configuration, web site hosting including DNS management and email.
Having built an enviable reputation for stability and security, Trustix
proves consistently to be one of the quickest organizations in the world
to issue security patches and updates. More importantly the Trustix
secure patch management system - SWUP (Software Updater) deploys patches
to mission critical applications securely efficiently and effectively.
This latest release further strengthens the security message and sets a
rock solid baseline for new and existing customers of the freely
available, commercially supported Linux distribution.
Trustix remains committed to the open source community with Trustix
Secure Linux 3.0 being the next step in the evolution of the world's
most secure Linux distribution.
