Dear Init Freedom Lovers
Once again the Veteran Unix Admins salute you on this day commemorating
six years since the first Devuan pre-alpha Valentine's Day release in 2015!
Devuan Beowulf 3.1.0 point release installer ISOs, desktop-live, and
minimal-live isos are now available. Note that ARM and virtual images are
not updated in this release.
What’s new in this point release:
The installer now offers a choice of three init systems. runit has been
added, along with sysvinit and openrc.
If you would like to select an alternate bootloader (lilo) or exclude
non-free firmware, you must select one of the Expert install options.
The latter URL also includes information about the official Devuan package
repositories, an ISO selection guide, and links to installation guides.
What about ARM and virtual images?
ARM and Virtual Machine images are provided by the greater Devuan
community rather than as part of official releases. Users are being
encouraged to build and contribute ARM images for their particular
hardware. This will increase the variety of images available and allow the
release schedule of the installer ISOs to move forward more quickly.
