Short Answer: When It's Ready

My guess though is that it is pretty close to Stable already, but it will probably at most take a few more months.  Keep in mind, debian bullseye was released not very long ago.  August 14th 2021 is when it became Stable.  If it becomes officially Stable within 3 months from that, awesome! If it takes 6 months from that, still great.

But yeah, I don't think it will take more than either of those dates given how close it is to Stable already.

If Golinux wants to jump in, I invite him to do so. wink

I really don't know aka.

I have  A VM of Devuan, and it seems to run pretty darn well. smile

At all times during her first 79 years in life she's admitted to the female pronoun, and most likely she'll continue with so, although as a modern person she wouldn't be too fussed.

And, the Chimaera 4.0 release will creep up on us when we least expect it; just a couple of t's to dot and i's to cross...

Re: devuan 4

Seems to be pretty stable already, I have it on 4 laptops, not on my regular desktop yet, but that's cause I'm a bit lazy, & I use it for Zoom, (so need to ensure it remains stable).

Ah, I hadn't known about this, my bad.

I am surprised I never heard of this before.

Seriously, I really didn't know.

My bad

I didn't know you were female aka.

No apology necessary.  Gender is completely irrelevant to me. Zero interest because I see the person not the genetic fluke.

Alrighty, still,  good to know. Thank you for your patience.

Re: devuan 4

Are there any special upgrade instructions?

Edit: Found my own answer - instructions on upgrading from Beowulf to Chimaera are here: https://www.devuan.org/os/documentation … o-chimaera

wow, i'm honestly amazed by the speed of new release, trailing debian 10 only by 2 months.

thanks for the hardwork by developers!

Re: devuan 4

Just a quick question, but I noticed something odd about the files contained within the chimaera torrent file. 

Under the minimal-live listing of files it has the "beta" files dated on 9-5-21.  Whereas under the installer-iso files, they do not show beta in their name.  Is this correct or an oversight?

I can't see an official announcement on this forum, so I hope I can use puma's thread to offer congratulations and thanks to the team.
