Debian 10 "Buster" has been released

over 3 years ago by Ugotsta

Debian has released its latest stable version 10.0 under the code name "Buster". This version of the prolific Linux distribution follows after more than 2 years of development and is scheduled to be supported for the next 5 years.

For those unaware, Debian is the core distribution on which multitudes of other distros are built including Ubuntu and live CDs like Tails as seen in this illustrious timeline from Wikipedia. Unlike derivatives such as Ubuntu that rely on Debian's testing/unstable branches, Debian itself is sharply focused on stability. This means that, while some of its tools don't match the latest versions, they're well tested.

Among the 59k+ software updates are the following: • Chromium 73.0 • GNU Emacs 26.1 • Mozilla Firefox 60.7 (in the firefox-esr package) • GIMP 2.10.8 • Python 3.7.2 • systemd 241 • Vim 8.1

Meanwhile, UEFI support has continued to improve. Users shouldn't need to disable Secure Boot support in firmware any longer, it should just work out of the box. And for environments where security is a high concern, AppArmor is enabled by default. There are many other enhancements and upgrades as well, including a new theme and wallpaper.
