The famous "Cahier de l'Admin Debian" is available in its jessie version in all good bookstores. It's named "Debian 8 Jessie" and changed collection so its cover is really different from the previous edition.

We have been mentioned in the "Best for documentation" section of this article comparing Linux Distributions: “we have to give a mention to the separate Debian Administrator’s Handbook (http://debian-handbook.info). This is exactly what we’re looking for as end users and admins: everything you might need, in one place.”

It's always nice to see our work praised :-)
We're going to get a lot of flak for writing these words, but we're not scared – Linux Voice drops ice cubes down the vest of fear. So here we go: you might be using the wrong Linux distribution. Or to put it more diplomatically, you might not be running the distro that's best suited to you.

No summer vacation for us, we're busy updating the book for Debian 7 (aka Wheezy). Have a look at the first chapters that we have put online! Feedback welcome.

Only 9 days left to support the translation of the Debian Administrator's Handbook in Arabic. Check out http://www.zoomaal.com/projects/daftardebian/1492?ref=71926 if an Arabic translation appeals to you! Muhammad Saied has already contributed a lot of text (see http://debian-handbook.info/browse/ar-MA/stable/), thus it would be nice to see this project succeed. Share the link!

Is it strange that the first thing that I looked for was whether the cover image is duplicated again on the book on the cover of the book in the cover?

It seems it's not the same desktop, shame. :P

Learn more about our plans to liberate the French book which served as a basis to create the Debian Administrator's Handbook and how you can help us to contribute it back as an official French translation.
The crowdunding campaign is over there: http://www.ulule.com/liberation-cahier-admin-debian/

Debian Jessie From Discovery To Mastery
Introduction

Accessible to all, this book teaches the essentials to anyone who wants to become an effective and independent Debian GNU/Linux administrator.

It covers all the topics that a competent Linux administrator should master, from the installation and the update of the system, up to the creation of packages and the compilation of the kernel, but also monitoring, backup and migration, without forgetting advanced topics like SELinux or AppArmor setup to secure services, automated installations, or virtualization with Xen, KVM or LXC.

Written by two Debian developers—Raphaël Hertzog and Roland Mas—it's a fantastic resource for all users of a Debian-based distribution.

The first half of the book covers topics relevant for any Debian user:

  • how the Debian project works and the various distributions that it offers;
  • how to effectively use the packaging system and the associated tools (dpkg, APT, …);
  • how to install Debian with debian-installer;
  • how to find the required documentation/help;
  • how to setup new services;
  • how to solve the problems that you might encounter;

The second half of the book concerns system administrators who have to setup and manage a Debian server, or a large set of desktop machines. You’ll learn:

  • how to configure all the most common services (Apache, Postfix, OpenLDAP, Samba, NFS, …)
  • how to setup virtual machines with KVM/Xen/LXC
  • how to secure your server
  • how to automatize installations with FAI/d-i/simple-cdd
  • how to manage your storage with LVM and RAID
  • etc.
