Linux News Today: Debian GNU/Linux 8.3 "Jessie" Now Available for Download, Live DVDs Coming Soon
We reported earlier on the official release of the third stable update in the Debian GNU/Linux 8 “Jessie” series of Linux kernel-based operating systems, Debian 8.3.
At the moment of writing the respective article, there were no installation mediums or Live DVD ISO images available for download. This is because Debian GNU/Linux 8.3 is not a new version of the acclaimed operating system, but a collection of updates that can be easily applied by existing Debian GNU/Linux 8.2 “Jessie” users through the official channels.
“Please note that this update does not constitute a new version of Debian 8 but only updates some of the packages included. There is no need to throw away old ‘jessie’ CDs or DVDs but only to update via an up-to-date Debian mirror after an installation, to cause any out of date packages to be updated,” explain the Debian developers in the official announcement.
However, not everyone is using Debian, and we’re writing this quick blog post to inform those of you who want to install the latest stable Debian GNU/Linux operating system on their computers that you can now download the installation-only ISO images for Debian GNU/Linux 8.3 (Jessie). Of course, Live DVDs with the most popular desktop environments will be available in the next days.
Debian GNU/Linux 8.3 installable-only ISOs are available for the 64-bit (amd64), i386 (x86) ARM 64-bit (AArch64), Armel, ARMhf, MIPS, MIPSel (MIPS Little Endian), PowerPC (PPC), PowerPC64 Little Endian (PPC64el), and s390x (IMB System z) hardware architectures. Naturally, a multi-arch ISO image is also available for download, along with the sources.
