Nitrux 1.3.2 Drops Systemd in Favor of OpenRC, Adds Wayland Support

The monthly release cycle of Nitrux continues today with Nitrux 1.3.2, which comes exactly a month after Nitrux 1.3.1 to updated various core components and default apps to their latest versions. Among these, there’s the Linux kernel 5.6.0-1021 from Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (Focal Fossa), KDE Plasma 5.19.4 desktop environment, KDE Frameworks 5.74.0, KDE Applications 20.11.70, Nvidia 450.66, LibreOffice 7.0.1, and Mozilla Firefox 80. However, the biggest change in Nitrux 1.3.2 is under the hood, as the distro is no longer shipping with systemd as default init system. In its place, the OpenRC dependency-based init system is now used by default.
