4MLinux 21.0 Beta Arrives with GNU C Library 2.24 and Many Updated Packages

Last week, we reported on the release of 4MLinux 21.0 Core Beta, the barebone version of the project on which the rest of the editions are based, including 4MLinux itself. And now, it looks like we’re able to test the Beta build, which is similar to the current stable 4MLinux 20.0 branch, but ships with many updated packages, including the Glibc 2.24 library. It also looks like Zbigniew Konojacki revealed the final release date of the 4MLinux 21.0 distribution. As such, users should expect to get their hands on 4MLinux 21.0 and 4MLinux 21.0 Core sometime in March 2017. This version will be supported for nine months, until November 2017, and will become OLD STABLE around July 2017, when 4MLinux 22.0 will hit the streets.
