+# batteries approaching Beta 1: now in unstable
+
+[[It's been a
+while|2008/10/ocaml_batteries_included_debian_packages]], but work on
+[OCaml batteries included](http://batteries.forge.ocamlcore.org) has
+continued steadily in the past months. We are now approaching the
+first **Beta release**, which is due in a few days.
+
+In the meantime, a couple of days ago I've uploaded the Debian
+[**ocaml-batteries
+package**](http://packages.debian.org/sid/ocaml-batteries-included) to
+the unstable archive for the first time (it was only available from
+experimental thus far). It is an “almost Beta” release which you are
+**encouraged to test** both for packaging aspects and for having a
+feeling of what batteries will look like in its final shape.
+
+To **get started** just do the following:
+
+    # aptitude install ocaml-batteries-included
+    $ ledit ocaml-batteries
+
+
+[[!tag lang/english planet/debian debian ocaml batteries]]
