Devuan GNU/Linux Continues Its Vision of Providing Debian Without Systemd

A new development version of Devuan GNU/Linux 1.0.0, the project’s upcoming first stable release, has been announced on the last day of November 2016. Versioned Beta 2, the update adds various important security fixes and the latest package versions from the Debian GNU/Linux 8 “Jessie” repositories. The Devuan developers also revealed the fact that the development cycle of Devuan GNU/Linux 1.0.0 will continue in 2017 with a Release Candidate (RC) version, which will be followed by the final release of the operating system a few weeks later. The good news, however, is that Devuan GNU/Linux 1.0.0 is shipping in early 2017.
