Linux News Today: Arch Linux 2016.05.01 Is Now Available for Download, Includes Linux Kernel 4.5.1
Yes, it’s that time of the month again, when we can get our hands on a brand-new bootable ISO image of the acclaimed and lightweight Arch Linux operating system.
The Arch Linux 2016.05.01 ISO has been released on May 1, 2016, bringing us the latest GNU/Linux technologies that have been released on the main software repositories of the operating system during the month of April.
Arch Linux 2016.05.01 is the first ISO image of the Arch Linux distro to be powered by a kernel from the Linux 4.5 series, which hit the stable channel sometime in mid-April 2016. The good news is that Arch Linux 2016.05.01 includes Linux kernel 4.5.1.
If you are an Arch Linux user, you don’t need to download the brand-new Arch Linux 2016.05.01 ISO to keep your system up to date, but only to run the “sudo pacman -Syu” or “yaourt -Syua” commands from time to time.
The Arch Linux 2016.05.01 bootable image is here for those of you who are just getting started with this powerful GNU/Linux operating system, as well as existing Arch Linux users who plan on reinstalling their systems because of various reasons.
We’ll keep this blog post short this time and invite you to download the dual-arch Arch Linux 2016.05.01 ISO image (support 64-bit and 32-bit systems) right now via our website or directly from the operating system’s homepage.
