The images can be tested from http://devel.trisquel.info/makeiso/iso/

Included are images for trisquel, trisquel-mini, and trisquel-sugar in
both 32 and 64 bit, along with sources and the fsf membership image.
Each file comes with a manifest, md5 sum, gpg signature and torrent.

Note that the torrents are not yet active in the tracker, until the
official release.

== Pre-release notes ==

This version 7.0 with codename Belenos is based on Ubuntu Trusty, and
will have support until 2019. Relevant packages and features include:

* Kernel Linux-libre 3.13 with lowlatency and bfq scheduling
* Custom desktop based on GNOME 3.12 fallback.
* Abrowser 33 as default browser, with simple Tor integration
* GNU IceCat 31 available as single-click optional install from 
  Abrowser's homepage. Complete with many extra privacy features.
* Electrum Bitcoin Wallet preinstalled
* Moved to DVD format, now with 50+ languages and extra applications
* Improved accessibility by default

The images will become the final 7.0 release if no big problems are
found in them. Small bugs will be fixed through package updates.
The final release will be done next week, giving time to prepare the
release materials, thoroughly test the images and publish the
release-upgrade script for users of older versions.

If you find a critical bug please make sure you get an ACK from me.

Happy testing!
