Distribution Release: Qubes OS 4.0.2

  • Happy New Year! We start the year with the announcement about the release of Qubes OS 4.0.2, the latest update of the project’s security-focused Linux distribution which allows users to “compartmentalise” computing tasks into isolated compartments called qubes. The new release updates the Linux kernel to version 4.19.89: “We are pleased to announce the release of Qubes 4.0.2. This is the second stable point release of Qubes 4.0. It includes many updates over the initial 4.0 release, in particular: all 4.0 dom0 updates to date; Fedora 30 TemplateVM; Debian 10 TemplateVM; Whonix 15 Gateway and Workstation TemplateVMs; Linux kernel 4.19 by default. If you installed Qubes 4.0 or 4.0.1 and have fully updated, then your system is already equivalent to a Qubes 4.0.2 installation. No further action is required. Note: at 4.5 GB, the Qubes 4.0.2 ISO image will not fit on a single-layer DVD (for the technical details underlying this, please see issue #5367). Instead, we recommend copying the ISO image onto a sufficiently large USB drive. However, if you would prefer to use optical media, we suggest selecting a dual-layer DVD or a Blu-ray disc.” See the release announcement for further information. Download: Qubes-R4.0.2-x86_64.iso (4,607MB, SHA256, signature, torrent, installation guide, pkglist).
