Debian Installer Alpha 3: Developers of Debian Project they announced the release of the third alpha build of the Debian GNU / Linux 10 Buster installer, to be released in the middle of 2019.
For those of you who aren't aware of the value of Debian, the Buster version, though a trial run, is much more stable than many fixed versions currently available in the GNU / Linux community.
The upcoming Debian GNU / Linux 10 Buster version currently under development uses the Linux 4.16 kernel. Of course, this means that the new kernel will not support all hardware from the beginning. So if you want to try the Debian GNU / Linux 10 Buster, you better not do it on a computer you just bought, or if you have very specialized hardware.
The new version brings upgraded Cryptsetup (2.0.0 version) for full encryption of your drive and the new debootstrap, a tool used to install a Debian base system into a subfolder of an already installed system. The new tool supports bookworm and Acquire-By-Hash, while the X11 VT (Virtual Terminal) switch has been improved for espeakup. The installer can now also detect LVM logical volumes.
The new Debian Installer supports new hardware such as CubieTruck Plus, NanoPi NEO, SolidRun CuBox and SolidRun ClearFog, as well as the 32 bit core installation on Raspberry Pi 3 and NVMe devices.
You can download the Debian Installer Alpha 3 from the links below.
You will only need the first DVD to install.
