While not a major milestone, Alpine Linux 3.12 is here to introduce initial support for the MIPS64 (Big Endian) architecture. This means that you can now install the distribution on this platform. On top of that, this new stable release also introduces initial support for the D programming language, also known as Dlang. Those using the GNOME Software graphical package manager will now be able to install apps with apk, the Alpine Package Keeper. Also, it’s now possible to use and manage YubiKeys two-factor authentication security keys.
