Debian GNU/Linux 11 “Bullseye” Officially Released, This Is What’s New

More than two years in the works, Debian GNU/Linux 11 “Bullseye” is here with lots of updated components and new GNU/Linux technologies to keep up with the times. It’s powered by the Linux 5.10 LTS kernel series, which will be supported for the next five years, until December 2026, and offers improved hardware support.

Software-wise, all supported desktop environments have been updated to newer versions, including GNOME 3.38, KDE Plasma 5.20, Xfce 4.16, LXQt 0.16, LXDE 11, and MATE 1.24. Under the hood, Debian GNU/Linux 11 uses the GCC 10.2 system compiler, as well as GNU C Library 2.31, LLVM 11.0.1, and other technologies.

GNU/Linux and GNU/Hurd Release

  • Debian 11 Bullseye is Here After 2 Years Development, Here's What's New

    The Debian Project has finally released a new stable version Debian 11 “Bullseye”. Let’s see what are the new features.

    After just over 2 years of development, the Debian Project released the latest stable version of its operating system, code name “Bullseye” today. This is a little over two years since the release of Debian 10 “Buster,” which came out 6 July 2019.

    Debian is one of the most stable and versatile Linux distributions that you can find. It is a very important distribution. Since many operating systems are based on Debian, the release of Bullseye will have a huge impact on the Linux community overall.

  • Debian GNU/Hurd 2021 Released With Experimental Rump-Based Userland Disk Driver, Go Port - Phoronix

    In addition to Debian GNU/Linux 11 set for release today, Debian GNU/Hurd 2021 has been released as the unofficial port of Debian to the GNU Hurd micro-kernel.

    Debian GNU/Hurd remains an unofficial port and thus not a formal release alongside today's Debian 11 Bullseye festivities. Debian GNU/Hurd represents a snapshot of the current development state as of the Debian 11.0 release time so is similar in nature and mostly the same sources.

    Given the current Hurd limitations, Debian GNU/Hurd 2021 remains just available for i386 and currently builds around 70% of the package archive. The overall hardware support of Debian GNU/Hurd remains quite poor so mostly just useful if you want to spin up a limited virtual machine.

  • Debian GNU/Hurd 2021 released!
    It is with huge pleasure that the Debian GNU/Hurd team announces the
    release of Debian GNU/Hurd 2021.  This is a snapshot of Debian "sid" at
    the time of the stable Debian "bullseye" release (August 2021), so it is
    mostly based on the same sources.  It is not an official Debian release,
    but it is an official Debian GNU/Hurd port release.
    The installation ISO images can be downloaded from cdimage
    in the usual three Debian flavors: NETINST, CD, or DVD. Besides the
    friendly Debian installer, a pre-installed disk image is also available,
    making it even easier to try Debian GNU/Hurd. The easiest way to run it
    is inside a VM such as qemu
    Debian GNU/Hurd is currently available for the i386 architecture with
    about 70% of the Debian archive, and more to come!

Original and official message

  • Debian Bullseye Released – Koipond

    Wow. It is 21:49 in the evening here (I am with isy and sledge in Cambridge) and image testing has completed! The images are being signed, and sledge is running through the final steps to push them out to our servers, and from there out onto the mirror and torrent networks to be available for public download.

    We have had help testing installation images from the regular team; amacater and schweer. With schweer, as ever, covering the edu images. Thank you.

    This release we were joined by bitin who kindly ran through a couple of tests of the default netinst image with both UEFI and BIOS based VMs, before joining a release party.

  • Gunnar Wolf• Bullseye arrives. Private ARM64 install fest!

    So today is the day when a new Debian release comes out! Congratulations to everybody, and thanks a lot mainly to the Release Team. Lots of very hard work was put into making Debian 11 «Bullseye» a reality!

    My very personal way to celebrate this was to do a somewhat different Debian install at home. Why different? Well, I have quite a bit of old, older and frankly elderly laptops at home. And as many of you know, I have done more than my fair share of Raspberry Pi installs… I have played and worked with assorted ARM machines at least since 2013, and I cannot consider myself a newbie with them by any means.

    But this is the first time I installed Debian on a mass-market, decently-specced ARM64-based laptop. Yes, I know the Pinebook has been there like for ages, but it really does feel like a computer to show off and not to use seriously (and I’ve seen probably too many people fiddling with it, unable to get $foo to work). So I got myself a used Lenovo Yoga C630. Yes, a discontinued product — it seems Lenovo was not able to properly market this machine, and it had a pretty short shelf life — the machine was available for samples in late 2018 and for general sale in 2019! The specs are quite decent:

  • FLOSSLinux: And we're almost there with media testing - 202108142013

    It's been quite a long day - last few normal tests are being run through now.

    Lots more involvement from more people: nothing too catastrophic and a good many installs run through. The usual back and forth and noticing odd things that crop up: it's always interesting to get someone else's viewpoint and second pair of eyes on something.

    Thanks also to Schweer who's done his usual solo testing of all the Debian-Edu software, quietly and with no fuss.

  • FLOSSLinux: Still chasing through release testing Debian media for Bullseye release 202108141655

    Lots of people - lots of effort - we're gradually closing in on a last few tests.

    It's been quite a long time but we're significantly ahead of where we would be on many tests for release candidates and main releases. It's always fun to do and chat back and forth. Having new testers check in from tomorrow (Australia) has also been a novelty.

Debian 11 'Bullseye' Linux distro is here

  • Debian 11 'Bullseye' Linux distro is here

    Debian is a great operating system in its own right, but also, it makes for an excellent base for other Linux distributions as well. For example, Ubuntu is probably the most well-known Linux distro in the world, and it is based on Debian. There are countless other operating systems, such as deepin Linux, that also stand on Debian's figurative shoulders. That's why it is so significant when a new version of Debian is released.

    And today, that is exactly what is happening. You see, after much testing, Debian 11 is finally available for download! Called "Bullseye," the number of changes is absolutely insane. You see, it has 11,294 totally new packages and 42,821 updated packages. Some major changes include native exFAT support and improved printing.

Debian 11 ‘Bullseye’ Released! Kernel 5.10, exFAT...

  • Debian 11 ‘Bullseye’ Released! Kernel 5.10, exFAT, Modern Printers Support

    Debian is free open-source community-supported Linux distribution started in 1993. It aims to be “The Universal Operating System” that is suitable for Desktop users, servers to cluster systems; and for database, web, and storage servers. And it’s the basis for many other distributions, including Ubuntu.

    In my mind, Debian is a quite stable and reliable system for production use. While serving with less system resources, it’s very popular for server users. Though the package base is a little old, there are package teams keep working for the security, stability and performance. And in “Bullseye”, the Debian Med team has been flighting against COVID-19 by packaging software for researching the virus on the sequence level and for the tools used in epidemiology.

Debian 11 “Bullseye” Now Available

  • Debian 11 “Bullseye” Now Available

    Debian is often called the “Mother of distributions,” because it is used by so many Linux variants as a base. Ubuntu is based on Debian, which is in turn used by so many developers to create other distributions, which helps to verify Debian as the mother of so many distributions. Although you might think, given Debian 10 was released in 2019, that Debian 11 would come with a massive amount of new features, don’t get too excited. Although there are a good amount of new features, the bulk of Debian 11 is updates to already-included packages.

    In total, there are 11,294 new packages and 42,821 updated packages. Those are some pretty staggering numbers, which clearly indicate the developers have been working hard to bring this new release to life.

Chrome OS 94 brings Debian Bullseye to Linux on Chromebooks

  • Chrome OS 94 brings Debian Bullseye to Linux on Chromebooks

    Did you hear? There’s a new major update of a desktop operating system now available. No, it’s not Windows, macOS, or even Chrome OS. It’s Debian Bullseye, which is version 11 of the popular Linux platform. And Chrome OS 94 brings Debian Bullseye to Linux on Chromebooks.

    The upgrade of the Linux container on Chromebooks is still a work in progress as there are some changes the Chromium development team has yet to make. You can read about them in this bug report. But if you have a Chromebook running the Dev Channel of Chrome OS 94 as I do, you can install and use Debian Bullseye on your Chromebook.

    On the Stable Channel of Chrome OS, currently, version 92, all new Linux containers on Chromebook use Debian 10, or the Buster version. Previously, Chromebooks used Stretch, which is Debian 9.

  • This week in Chrome OS: Chrome OS 92 hits stable

    If you use Linux on your Chromebook, you probably know that the underlying container on Chrome OS is based on Debian. As of now, the latest version of Debian for Chrome OS is Debian 10, code-named ‘Buster.’ It appears that this will soon change with the arrival of Debian 11 ‘Bullseye’ on Chrome OS.

    Gabriel Brangers from Chrome Unboxed was playing around on the Canary channel with a Tiger Lake Chromebook (I presume the ASUS Chromebook CX9) and noticed that there is now a flag to enable Debian 11 on your Chromebook. This brings some kernel improvements and also the possibility of running Vulkan games on a Chromebook, which coincidentally is our next topic. You won’t notice much difference from Buster to Bullseye if you aren’t a Linux power user, but this is exciting stuff for Chrome OS fans.

    Linux is one of the well-liked operating systems because of its open-source nature, flexibility to customization, ability to operate on older machines, security, and stability. The open-source operating system unlike the closed operating systems allows all the users equal opportunity to change and modify the underlying code. Linux can be referred to as the heart of open-source operating systems. After being established in the mid 1990s; it has expanded across the globe from smart computers to phones and home appliances, Linux can be found everywhere.

    Linux has tons of distributions for various purposes and audiences and Debian is one of them. Debian is a free operating system made by a set of individuals for a good cause. It is one of the most popular distributions made by volunteers coming together all across the globe to create a free-to-use operating system. The Debian system usually makes use of Linux or FreeBSD kernels. The GNU project, as in the complete name Debian GNU/Linux, consists of the main parts and tools for Debian. Debian allows the user the” freedom of software” as in their own words. The users can download it for no cost, free, and do a wide variety of work.

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.
