Version 19 of the Linux MX distribution has already been released. One of the highlights is that it is based on the latest release of Debian, 10.1 (Buster). It is governed by Linux Kernel 4.19 and as a desktop environment uses XFCE 4.14.
The Debian project developers have announced the official availability of the first update of Debian 10 “buster”. This new release brings together a series of important security fixes and adjustments that have already been released and that have been packaged in the same installation image to facilitate the system update.
If you are a user of Debian 8 Jessie and wish to continue receiving security updates, you must update to the latest version, Debian 9 Stretch as soon as possible. The previous release of this Linux distro, which was released in 2015 has stopped to have support and, therefore, will no longer receive regular security updates.
Debian has released the second Debian Stretch maintenance image: Debian 9.2. This means that if you have an installation in progress you do not have to use it, keeping the update packages up to date is enough.
Debian 8.1 is available for download. The developers have been working for 2 years to release this new version of the Open Source operating system.
This new edition, which is called Jessie arrives with a new default init system, systemd. The systemd suite provides many exciting features such as faster boot times, cgroups for services, and the possibility of isolating part of the services. The sysvinit init system is still available in Jessie.
