[STABLE RELEASE] BunsenLabs Hydrogen

On behalf of the BL team, it is my pleasure to announce the availability of the stable Hydrogen release to the world, based on the latest Debian point release 8.4. After a year of unhurried tinkering and polishing, we think that the time has come to make things official.

As always, we have published both direct download links and torrents on our installation page including instructions.

This time, there are three hybrid live+installation ISOs: Two editions are larger-than-CD-size 64bit and 32bit ISOs, the third edition is a CD-sized 32bit ISO which also comes with a non-PAE kernel to accommodate older systems and a somewhat reduced package list to keep the size down.

Users who installed the rc1 and rc2 release candidates do not need to reinstall; they have been continuously updated via our package repository. Consider however taking action to accomodate a recent package update by changing a symlink in your user directories to point to a changed wallpaper location as described in detail in this thread.

We'd like to thank you all for your support as users and community members; we didn't think at all that these forums would grow to the size and activity we've been seeing over the past months.

Cheers!

Oh! Congratulations! big_smile

Got the e-mail this morning, but didn't check it.
Now I'm home from work and am downloading (and will seed) all of them.

I installed the RC1, and have been updating, so I should be more-or-less¹ up-to-date by now.

Congrats to the entire dev team and all the supporters who got us here! Official Hydrogen release!  I'm glad that the 32-bit hybrid was able to be created.  Coffee or beers to everyone!

Re: [STABLE RELEASE] BunsenLabs Hydrogen

So...now that it's on the Official Stable release. ...what does this actually imply actually? What does this mean for the community as a whole, upstream and downstream wise? Giving it the name Official is great, but what does it mean in the long run actually?

Re: [STABLE RELEASE] BunsenLabs Hydrogen

Unofficially - since I don't want to speak out of turn.

It means - other than "Bunsen script" bugs - where the dev team will have to fix something, we are locked in and battened down until "Stretch" becomes the next Debian stable release.

  • Debian 8 ("jessie") — current stable release ««--- we are here

  • The next release of Debian is codenamed "stretch" — no release date has been set

This is where the dev team gets a well earned rest.

Of course there are always exceptions to the rule.  smile

Re: [STABLE RELEASE] BunsenLabs Hydrogen

If one looks at the Debian Production Releases we've got 'maybe'¹ ± year until Stretch.

------
1. that's a really big 'maybe' because Debian's moto is:  When it's ready.  But I'm putting money on 'Buster' being out on or before 2020.

Re: [STABLE RELEASE] BunsenLabs Hydrogen

Is there a cut-off date for Stretch for when they aren't taking new packages or changes to existing packages?
