DISCREETE LINUX BETA.1 RELEASED

2016/DISCREETE TEAM
Introduces the one-stick-system method for a better usability, especially for inexperienced users. It can automatically transform the remaining free space on the boot stick into a "Cryptobox". I.e., after booting the user is automatically prompted for the encryption passphrase and can immediately start working in his then decrypted individually configured working environment.
System was updated to the current state of the Debian security updates.
Remaining old strings in dialogues or menus referring to "Truecrypt*" where corrected, because users can now choose whether they want to encrypt their Cryptoboxes with LUKS or Veracrypt.
Many smaller Bugfixes.
The ISO-Image can be downloaded here (Please note that Discreete is still in Beta stadium and not ready for productive use).
If you prefer to build the Discreete Linux system yourself for full control over the final result or for custom configuration, you can find the tutorials for this here

PROJECT IS RENAMED AND SWITCHES TO DEBIAN

2016/DISCREETE TEAM
The "Ubuntu Privacy Remix"-Project decided to continue the Project on the basis of Debian. Related to that the Projects Name will be changed to Discreete Linux. The most important reason for this decision was, that Debian is implementing the idea of free software exemplary, unlike the increasingly commercialized Ubuntu. Another concrete reason was Canonicals practice of providing security updates for the full LTS-period only for the “main” repository, not for the “universe” repository (with about 45.500 packages). This is critical as many packages therein are no longer maintained and can therefore be affected by security holes. When our project was founded in 2007, the decision for Ubuntu as basis was mainly due to the then greater user friendliness. In the meantime also in this aspect we see no disadvantages of Debian anymore - on the contrary. The project is very glad to continue its work on the basis of the stable distribution of Debian in the future.
