Devuan GNU/Linux 1.0.0 “Jessie” Just Around the Corner, Release Candidate Out

The Devuan project continues its vision of providing a libre Debian fork without using the systemd init system, and the Release Candidate (RC) version brings the GNU/Linux distribution closer to a final release. The interesting fact is that this RC appears to be stable enough to be used for production work. The Release Candidate couldn’t ship without some much-needed improvements, and among the ones mentioned in the release notes are a better automatic detection of wireless networks, support for installing Samba, as well as multiple base flavors, including desktop-live, embedded, minimal-live, and installer-iso.
