TurnKey Linux 13.0 RC

Alon Swartz has announced the availability of the release candidate for TurnKey Linux 13.0, a major update of the project's vast library of Debian-based virtual appliances that integrate the best open-source software into ready-to-use specialist solutions: "Drumroll please... I'm thrilled to make not one, but two announcements. TurnKey Core 13.0RC - this is a release candidate of TurnKey Core 13 based on Debian GNU/Linux 7.0 ('Wheezy')- the upcoming version of Debian, which hasn't officially been released but shouldn't be too far off. 64-bit support - TurnKey Core 13 RC is available in both 32-bit and 64-bit variants. This means we can now guarantee that TurnKey 13 will come with 64-bit support. The wait is nearly over. To be honest, the lack of 64-bit support has been a nagging source of embarrassment for TurnKey for quite a while now. A significant 66% of users said this was 'very important' to them. We agree."
