The Debian Project will release Debian 14 Bullseye on August 11th.
Needless to say, this is a very important distribution in itself, as it is the basis for many others, such as Ubuntu, Mint, Devuan, Knoppix, Tails, Raspbian, Pop! _OS, SteamOS etc.
In a post on developer mailing list, the release team said: "We plan to release on 2021-08-14." It is a little over two years since its release Debian 10 Buster, released on July 6, 2019. The trial version of Bullseye is now "completely frozen" and accepts only "emergency bug fixes".
Debian 11 uses the Linux 5.10 kernel and officially supports the same architectures as Debian 10, although this version may be the latest with full support for the i386 32 bit architecture.
Debian 11 brings over 13.370 new packages. 62% of Buster packages have been updated and 13% (7.278) have been removed.
This release is also the first to support an exFAT kernel after Microsoft released the 2019 specs and Samsung contributed to the exFAT drivers it uses on Android. Ext4 is the default filesystem and support for exFAT is mainly for better compatibility.
The default mail server remains Exim and developers say upgrading to Exim 4.94 in Bullseye is important as it "introduces the concept of infected data being read from unreliable sources - and this will corrupt configurations that will not be updated accordingly".
Removed packages include boot loader, Python 2.1-based Mailman 2 (including Mailman 3), and Chef configuration management. Python 2.7 continues to exist but "is not supported by current applications". Included for use by some application development processes only.
Note that Debian 11 will be the latest version that supports separate / bin / sbin and / lib directories with equivalents under the / usr folder.
Personally, as you can see in the picture above, I have been using Debian 11 for several months without any problems.
I highly recommend installing the distribution, although it is not for users trying out Linux for the first time. If you belong to this category try it MXThe Ubuntu, or Manjaro (his fork Arch with installer).
Those of you who have been through the above distributions try Debian.
Use one Live ISO which has the calamares installer. It is much easier for users with little experience in Debian, than the traditional distribution installer available at full ISO of 4 + GB.
