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 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.
