NEWS 131024
I’ve replaced Fluxbox with LXDE and added the applications GParted (partition editor), AbiWord, Icedove (Thunderbird) and AlsaPlayer. The biggest improvement in version 131024 is that Debian Installer and Debian Live Installer now work flawlessly.

There is no other live version of Debian Jessie (as far as I know).
