Alpine Linux 3.8 is out as the most advanced version of the GNU/Linux distribution, bringing, for the first time, an ARM64 (AArch64) image designed for deploying the operating system on Raspberry Pi devices. Best of all, users can now install Alpine Linux on the recently released Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ SBC, which features a Quad-core 1.4GHz 64-bit CPU, faster Ethernet, and dual-band Wi-Fi. Also new in Alpine Linux 3.8 is support for IBM System z (s390x) architectures in the ISO image, which can also be used for KVM (Kernel-based virtual machine) installations, thanks to IBM who provided the developer with the required hardware. Furthermore, this release adds support for the Crystal language, as well as support for NetBoot installs on all architectures.
