EasyOS Dunfell 0.101 released

December 25, 2020 — BarryK

The mainstream release of EasyOS is the Buster-series, version 2.5.5 released yesterday, see announcement:

The Dunfell-series is built with packages compiled from source, using a fork of OpenEmbedded. It has the 5.10.2 kernel, so will be an opportunity work with that kernel -- eventually, it is expected the mainstream Debian-DEB-based Buster-series will migrate to the Bullseye-series, and likely use the 5.10.x kernel.

Note the version number, 0.101, being under 1.0. I have done this so that newcomers won't get confused about which one to download. Currently, the Buster-series is recommended for casual users, mostly because of the convenience of the large DEB repository. However, might promote the Dunfell-series to version-parity with the Buster-series one day, we will see how it goes.

get 0.101 from here:

The 5.10 kernel has some features that will potentially enhance security, that I want to explore.
