By the way, Debian continues its tradition of naming releases after Toy Story characters. And the fresh Release 11.0 is named "Bullseye", after the horse of the main character Sheriff Woody.
6208 developers were involved in the creation of Debian 11.
Despite the fact that the release has been declared stable, the developers warn that some problems may still arise in the release.
Debian 11 updates will be available for 5 years.
The new version supports nine architectures: amd64, i386, ppc64el, s390x, armel, armhf, arm64, mipsel, mips64el.
Among the major changes:
- Linux kernel update to version 5.10
- updating server applications, including Apache httpd 2.4.48, BIND 9.16, Dovecot 2.3.13, Exim 4.94, Postfix 3.5, MariaDB 10.5, nginx 1.18, PostgreSQL 13, Samba 4.13, OpenSSH 8.4.
- a new driver for the exFAT filesystem is activated in the kernel by default, which no longer requires the exfat-fuse package to be installed
- termination of official support for mips architecture
- development tools update GCC 10.2, LLVM/Clang 11.0.1, OpenJDK 11, Perl 5.32, PHP 7.4, Python 3.9.1, Rust 1.48, Glibc 2.31.
- software for CUPS and SANE packages print and scan capabilities without prior installation of drivers on printers and scanners connected to the system via the USB port.
- single unified cgroup hierarchy (cgroup v2) in systemd.
- changing the format of lines in the /etc/apt/sources.list file related to resolving security issues.
- adding support for the SBAT (UEFI Secure Boot Advanced Targeting) mechanism to grub2, which solves the problems with the revocation of certificates for UEFI Secure Boot
- and much more.
We are glad to announce that from today on the RealHOST hosting the Debian GNU / Linux 11.0 distribution is already available for installation in the collection of available templates.
