State of the VDT

In the last week we've released two updates to VDT 1.8.0. The first was a major update that fixed a bug that could prevent installation and provided several software and documentation updates. The second provides a minor bug fix to the new method of updating CA certificates.

Alain would like to encourage people to try out the new method for updating CA Certificates that is available in VDT 1.8.0. It's a program called vdt-update-certs (available in CA-Certificates-Updater package). It can be run via cron or by hand. It will check the VDT web site once a day to see if there are new CA Certificates and it will update them on your behalf. It will help you keep them up to date without manual intervention.

Movement towards 1.8.1
