Webmin v.1.860 supports Devuan?

It is not listed on the list of "official" supported linux distributions here, , but it appears that Devuan is now officially supported by Webmin.  I upgraded a 64 bit system today only to see a webmin message saying that my system is not a Debian system but actually a "Devuan based system".  I allowed this change to be made and now my webmin page shows,

Operating system     Devuan Linux jessie
Webmin version     1.860

This is an acceptance that I have been looking forward to.

Re: Webmin v.1.860 supports Devuan?

Indeed very good news, especially for those of us who are not well-rounded experts (yet).
I installed webmin via APT, and all works the way described (apt-transport-https is the only package needs to be added to the default base instance).
I also uninstalled / installed exim4 and a few other exercises - all is fine. I am using the 1.870 update.

webmin is so useful, and it is great to see it working with SysV init.
Describe whats important, what seldom or never change - then give it away!
