**skd**, a software I told you in [this blogpost](http://dennis.dieploegers.de/easy-ssh-public-key-distribution/) about, has now been released as version „1.0b“, being the first public release.
The software is considered beta (thus the „b“-suffix) so all features have been included, but some errors still can occur.
For easy deployment I wrapped up a virtual appliance in ova-format, which you can download on [[http://dploeger.github.com/skd/|skd’s website]] or [[https://github.com/dploeger/skd|its repository]].
It would be great if some of you would just check it out and tell me through [[https://github.com/dploeger/skd/issues|skd’s issue tracker]] when there’s any problem with the software or the appliance.
Overall it was a pleasure creating the appliance using VMware’s quite brilliant [[http://www.vmware.com/products/studio/overview.html|VMware Studio]].
The appliance is using [[http://www.ubuntu.com/|Ubuntu]] as the operating system, so that should be noted, too.
