Arch Linux 2017.05.01 is available

As usual every beginning of the month, a new version of Arch Linux has been released, specifically version 2015.05.01. Arch Linux users can now update normally and non-users can download their ISO image from the Arch Linux official website.

This operating system follows the guidelines of the Rolling Release system, a very popular update system that consists of regularly updating an operating system little by little, thus ensuring that it is always up to date. The most attractive thing about this system is that it avoids having to format the computer to install a new version, since as small changes are made, it is not necessary.

The main novelty that this version brings is the inclusion of the Linux Kernel, in its version 4.10.13. This version is the penultimate version of the Linux Kernel (the last one is the 4.11), but it is the latest stable version and therefore the most secure version so far.

Otherwise There is not much to say, since in operating systems with Rolling Release update system, too large updates are not usually released. In this case, we are left to name a few small security updates in the form of patches and updating versions of the applications built into the operating system.

Remember that if you want to update your operating system to this version, you only have to type the command «sudo Pacman -Syu» for this to happen. If you are new and you want to try Arch Linux, you can download the latest version on your official Web site.

Of course, we warn that Arch Linux It is an exclusive 64-bit operating system. If you want to install it on an older machine, you will have to find an alternative or install a slightly older version of Arch Linux that does support this feature.

    "Archlinux users can now update normally" and earlier also, because in arch there are usually updates every day, these images are only for new installations.
    The 32 bits in archlinux are "depreciated" that is, if you have a 32-bit computer, another distribution is better because in a few months it will stop supporting this platform.
