"After almost two years or work and 994 commits later made by only 14 contributors, I'm proud to announce that the Linux Terminal Server Project project released LTSP 5.2 on Wednesday the 17th of February.

"As we wanted this release to be some kind of a reference point in LTSP's history, we also released LDM (LTSP Display Manager) 2.1 and LTSPfs 0.6 on the same day.

"Packages for LTSP 5.2, LDM 2.1 and LTSPfs 0.6 are already in Ubuntu Lucid and a backport for Karmic is available in my PPA. For other distributions, I'm expecting packages to be available very soon. If you want to check out the code, it's on Launchpad.

"It would take a lot of pages to describe all that was changed during these two years so I won't even try to do that :)

"Instead, I'll simply give you a short overview of what one can do with LTSP nowadays:

* Boot a Debian/Fedora/Gentoo/Ubuntu environment using PXE (dhcp + tftp) and connect to an application server using SSH and X11.
* Either run the whole session remotely or run select applications locally to use specific hardware or advance 3D capabilities"
