Thanks to a very productive community/team call earlier today, IIAB 6.5
Preview 1 <https://github.com/iiab/iiab/releases> is now released for
implementers to experiment with.  This is a substantial step forward
<https://github.com/iiab/iiab/milestone/2?closed=1> from IIAB 6.4 in terms
of installation/configuration management, with the resolution of some
important legacy bugs, to begin showcasing our new direction.

You can install IIAB 6.5 Preview 1 onto a Raspberry Pi 3 from master here:


Or feel free to substitute in the following, if you prefer to lock in IIAB
6.5 Preview 1:

   git clone https://github.com/iiab/iiab -b 6.5-preview-1

Just A Couple Quick Highlights:

   - Installation on Raspbian Desktop (not just Raspbian Lite) once again
   works (thanks TK Kang for catching this!)
   - IIAB 6.5's installation over WiFi (instead of Ethernet) may not be
   fully working just yet, but the core proof-of-concept (
   https://github.com/iiab/iiab/issues/197) now works: feel free to give it
   a shot.
   - Sugarizer's installation routine is now faster, uses less space, and
   is most reliable.
   - Interrupted installations can once again be restarted, with
   - Testing on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, Debian 6.3 and CentOS 7.4 continues (all
   feedback appreciated, on Raspbian too!)
