Parsix GNU/Linux 8.5 Reached End of Life, Upgrade to Parsix GNU/Linux 8.10 Now

Dubbed Atticus, Parsix GNU/Linux 8.5 was announced approximately months ago, on the 14th of February, and it was entirely based on the Debian GNU/Linux 8.5 “Jessie” operating system, which means that is shipped with the long-term supported Linux 4.1.17 kernel and thes GNOME 3.18 desktop environment with GNOME Shell 3.18.3. On September 30, 2016, the end-of-life (EOL) development status was reached, which means that Parsix GNU/Linux 8.5 “Atticus” will no longer receive security and software updates. However, the software repositories will remain open one more week, until October 10, 2016, for users to upgrade their systems.
