SolydXK 9 Linux OS Debuts Based on Debian 9 Stretch, Drops Raspberry Pi Support

Based on the recently launched Debian GNU/Linux 9 “Stretch” operating system, SolydXK 9 has been in development for a few months now, and it entered Beta stages only a three weeks ago. It’s a major release that adds numerous new features and lots of other performance improvements, bug fixes, and under-the-hood changes. Prominent new features of SolydXK 9 include a graphical user interface (GUI) for the in-house built Solydxk Systems utility to allow users to easily encrypt their disk partitions, as well as any external drive, choose mirrors for the repositories that are closer to them and faster, clean up their system, hold back packages, or localize it.
