Debian 11 Bullseye now available with Linux 5.10, GNOME 3.38, Plasma 5.20 and many updated packages

Debian 11 now available

So and as it was programmed, Debian 11 Bullseye has been released this Saturday, August 14. The previous version was the 10 busters that arrived in July 2019, and from today a new stage begins that introduces new features for everything, but in the Debian style: more conservative than in, for example, its favorite son, which is Ubuntu, and much more than in operating systems with Rolling Release development model. It is their philosophy, and it is the reason why this operating system is so robust and stable.

The launch was scheduled for today, and tomorrow in Spain they have been preparing everything. The images have been uploaded some time before, of course, and then the maintainers have confirmed that everything has gone well before announcing the launch. That moment has already come on social media, and the Debian 11 installer can now be downloaded. On the name and as always, it is a character from the Toy Story saga, in this case the rag horse.

Highlights of Debian 11 Bullseye

  • Supported until 2026, LTS from 2023.
  • Linux 5.10.
  • Updated desks. Many of the most outstanding novelties are linked to this point and to the previous one, the nucleus:
  • Native support for exFAT.
  • Driverless printing is extended to USB devices with the new "ipp-usb" package.
  • New command open available as a convenient alias for xdg-open (default) or run-mailcap, managed by the update-alternatives system. It is intended for interactive use on the command line, to open files with its default application, which can be a graphical program when available.
  • Systemd now enables its persistent journal functionality by default, storing its files in / var / log / journal /.
  • New default password hash format "yescrypt".
  • Updated popular packages:
    • Apache 2.4.48
    • BIND DNSServer 9.16
    • calligra 3.2
    • Crypt setup 2.3
    • Emacs 27.1
    • GIMP 2.10.22
    • GNU Compiler Collection 10.2
    • GnuPG 2.2.20
    • Inkscape 1.0.2
    • MariaDB 10.5
    • OpenSSH 8.4p1
    • Perl 5.32
    • PHP 7.4
    • PostgreSQL 13
    • Python 3, 3.9.1
    • rustc 1.48
    • Samba 4.13
    • I came 8.2
    • More than 59.000 other ready-to-use packages.

Interested users, which I imagine will not be few, can already download Debian 11 Bullseye from the stable branch server of the project, available at this link. Debian 10 has been moved to the "oldstable" as it will continue to be supported until 2024, but it is no longer the newest.

    Impossible to install due to problems with the computer's firmware! If the Debian folks solved these things they might use this OS! It must be clarified that I have never had problems installing Ubuntu and derivatives….

      That's because Debian by default only has FREE SOFTWARE and maybe your computer needs non-free firmware for some things to work.

      Cease, the Debian project is more restrictive with non-free firmware, you need to download the non-free image that includes the drivers for your hardware. The same installer usually advises that you need extra packages.

    Open the terminal and type su (it will ask you for the root password) then type nano / etc / sudoers (you will edit the permissions file for the sudo command) then below where it says "root ALL = (ALL: ALL) ALL" scroll down and type your username you give it space and then write the ALL = (ALL: ALL) ALL then save the file with ctrl + x now you will have sudo, now write sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list (it will ask you for the password of your user) in that text file, search all the lines that end in main, give it space and write contrib non-free, it would look exactly like this: deb bullseye main contrib non-free (this is an example) and you must do it in all the lines that end in main, then save it with ctrl + x and then write sudo apt update (to reload the repositories) and then write sudo apt install firmware-linux -nonfree (with this you will install the PRIVATIVE OR NOT FREE firmware) when you finish installing, restart the computer and then you will have the necessary drivers.
