Dear Friends and Software Freedom Lovers,

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

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
     * Standalone daemons (eudev, elogind) to replace aspects of
       monolithic systemd.
     * New boot, display manager and desktop themimg.
