Debian developers have announced the availability of operating system issue number 10 which always references their Toy Story series characters in their names. Debian 10, codenamed "Buster", arrives after 25 months of work.
The new version of Debian comes to system lovers who are always looking for better hardware support and stability. Debian version 10 will be supported for 5 years, thanks to the combined work of the security and long-term package maintenance teams.
Although considered a great option to run on your server, now running Linux 4.19 Kernel, the "Desktop side" of Debian has also received attention, receiving upgrades of the main interfaces graphics at the moment:
– GNOME 3.30 – KDE Plasma 5.14 – Cinnamon 3.8 – LXDE 0.99.2 – LXQt 0.14 – MATE 1.20 – Xfce 4.12.
Among the major news that comes with this new release, as well as over 60% of packages updated from the previous Debian release (9), we have added the standard Wayland support for installing with GNOME Shell, although Xorg is still installed and can be selected on the login screen.
Another big news is the improved support for UEFI, allowing Debian to be installed on a computer with Secure Boot enabled. Other updates include the addition of AppArmor enabled by default as well as the nftables. We also have the addition of better support for wireless printers.
Of all these packages, about 91% are part of the "Reproducible Builds", which allows for greater transparency between what is in the source code of the applications and what is really in the binary, ensuring the reliability of Debian.
Download Debian 10 "Buster"
Debian is available for download for several different processor architectures, with different options as well, and can be downloaded in torrent, ISO, specific interfaces or with a DVD where you can choose the desired interface at installation time. If you have a need to use a proprietary driver like Nvidia's, you can install the version non-free from Debian.
