64 Studio develops a distribution of native free software for digital
content creation on x86_64 hardware. It's based on the pure 64 port of
Debian GNU/Linux, but with a specialised package selection and lots of
other tweaks. We also produce custom versions for our OEM partners, and a
32-bit edition for legacy PC hardware.
We are glad to announce that 64 Studio 2.0-rc1 has been released. The
codename for this release is shamelessly lifted from the second track on
Strictly Personal, the second album by Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band.
Or the original title of the band's first album, whatever you prefer :-)
Please note that is still a testing release, so if you want to stick to
the stable version of 64 Studio just use the 1.0 installer. However we
think this release is in pretty good shape, and expect to release
2.0-final later this month.
The changelog is available here:

You can also upgrade from a 1.0 install, or from previous testing
releases, using our testing APT repository:
deb http://apt.64studio.com/64studio/testing 64studio main
and running the 64studio-upgrade script, or clicking the 'Mark all
upgrades' button in the Synaptic package manager.
To avoid system breakage, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU COMMENT OUT ANY OTHER APT
REPOSITORIES (for example Debian ones), as they might interfere with the
