SystemImager 3.9.2 (-unstable) released

SystemImager is software which automates Linux installs, software distribution, and production deployment.

SystemImager makes it easy to do automated installs (clones), software distribution, content or data distribution, configuration changes, and operating system updates to your network of Linux machines. You can even update from one Linux release version to another!

SystemImager 3.9.2 has been released. The most attractive feature of this release is surely the support for the PlayStation 3, as you can see from the new packages systemimager-ppc64-ps3boot-standard and systemimager-ppc64-ps3initrd_template. So, following this howto http://wiki.systemimager.org/index.php/HOWTO_image_Sony_PlayStation_3_using_SystemImager, you can now easily automate the installation of your brand-new cluster of PS3s! ;-)

There is also a lot of work in the Debian/Ubuntu support and, in particular, packaging, as you can deb packages that are officially available now on SF!

Moreover there's the usual list of bug fixes (see the changelog later).
