Mark Hindley has announced the release of Devuan GNU+Linux 3.0.0, code name “Boewulf”. Devuan is a Linux distribution originally forked from Debian in order to provide alternative init software to systemd (SysV, OpenRC or runit). This version of Devuan is based on Debian 10: “Devuan developers are delighted to announce the release of Devuan ‘Beowulf’ 3.0.0 as the project’s new stable release. This is the result of many months of painstaking work by the team and detailed testing by the wider Devuan community. What’s new in Beowulf 3.0.0? Based on Debian Buster (10.4) with Linux kernel 4.19; support for ppc64el in addition to the existing i386, amd64, armel, armhf and arm64 architectures; runit optional alternative /sbin/init; openrc optional alternative to sysv-rc service and runlevel control; standalone daemons eudev and elogind to replace aspects of monolithic systemd; new boot, display manager and desktop theme.” See the release announcement and release notes for further details. Devuan 3.0.0 is available in the form of live (“Minimal” or “Desktop” with Xfce) or installation images (“Desktop”, “Server” and “Netinstall”); here are the download links for the x86_64 architecture: devuan_beowulf_3.0.0_amd64_desktop-live.iso (1,155MB, SHA256, signature), devuan_beowulf_3.0.0_amd64-desktop.iso (3,641MB, SHA256, signature), devuan_beowulf_3.0.0_amd64-server.iso (620MB, SHA256, signature), devuan_beowulf_3.0.0_amd64-netinstall.iso (308MB, SHA256, signature).
