Raspbian 2019-06-20 is here, adding support for the Raspberry Pi 4

Raspbian 2019-06-20
Yesterday we publish an article echoing the launch of the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B, the latest version of the famous motherboard. As with every new release, the latest version of the Raspberry includes new hardware, so the company wasted no time launch Raspbian 2019-06-20, the latest update to the official Raspberry Pi Foundation operating system for the board they make. As you can deduce from its name, and from the image that heads this article, Raspbian is based on Debian.

Although the new version includes some interesting news, the most outstanding is the support for the newly launched Raspberry Pi 4 Model B. Another outstanding novelty is that Raspbian 2019-06-20 is based on Debian 10 "Buster", an operating system that has not yet been officially released. Debian 10 is still in beta, so users of the new version of Raspbian should not be surprised if their operating system receives many updates between now and July 6, when "Buster" will arrive in its stable version. .

Raspbian 2019-06-20 is based on Debian 10

Among the novelties that arrive with the June 2019 version of Raspbian, we have:

  • Linux 4.19.50 LTS.
  • Implementation of the FKMS OpenGL desktop graphics driver.
  • Window composer manager xcompmgr.
  • New video output option to take advantage of the 4K capabilities of the new board.
  • New display configuration utility for the FKMS driver.
  • New PiXflat UI theme.
  • A new CPU temperature measurement plugin has been added.
  • Now partition boat it is 256MB.
  • Support for independent adjustments when using more than one monitor.
  • Updated versions of Chromium, Adobe Flash Player, OpenJDK 11, among others.

Raspbian 2019-06-20 is available from this link. It is clear that, being the option that the company develops for the board they manufacture, Raspbian is one of the options to consider. But I am a user who likes to try many options until I find the perfect one, so I recommend trying other distributions such as Ubuntu MATE for Raspberry Pi. What operating system do you use on your Raspberry Pi?
