    Hi all,

    We now have Booktype 2.0-pre-release nightly snapshots available, in the form of deb packages for Debian stable (wheezy) or Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (trusty):

    http://apt.sourcefabric.org/snapshots/

    This is the first version of Booktype to have automated install configuration questions (in multiple languages), thanks to debconf. You can install these packages with any program that supports dependency resolution, for example:

    sudo gdebi booktype*.deb

    Booktype 2.0 requires Redis server 2.8 or later, a version which is available in Ubuntu 14.04 but not Debian wheezy. If your Debian server runs wheezy, make sure you have the wheezy-backports apt repository set up. There should be a line similar to:

    deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian wheezy-backports main

    in your /etc/apt/sources.list file.

    You will also need a postgresql server available for connections from your Booktype instance:

    http://sourcefabric.booktype.pro/booktype-20-for-authors-and-publishers/setting-up-the-database/

    If this sounds like too much trouble, you can create an account for yourself on http://booktype-dev.sourcefabric.org/ instead, and try the pre-release versions there.

    Cheers!

    Daniel
