Dear Init Freedom Lovers

Once again the Veteran Unix Admins salute you!

We are happy to announce that Devuan GNU+Linux 2.0 ASCII Stable is
finally available.

Devuan is a GNU+Linux distribution committed to providing a universal,
stable, dependable, free software operating system that uses and
promotes alternatives to systemd and its components.

Devuan 2.0 ASCII runs on several architectures. Installer CD and DVD
ISOs, as well as desktop-live and minimal-live ISOs, are available for
i386 and amd64. Ready-to-use images can be downloaded for a number of
ARM platforms and SOCs, including Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone, OrangePi,
BananaPi, OLinuXino, Cubieboard, Nokia and Motorola mobile phones, and
several Chromebooks, as well as for Virtualbox/QEMU/Vagrant.

The Devuan 2.0 ASCII installer ISOs offer a variety of Desktop
Environments including Xfce, KDE, MATE, Cinnamon, LXQt, with others
available post-install. The expert install mode now offers a choice of
either SysVinit or OpenRC as init system. In addition, there are
options for "Console productivity" with hundreds of CLI and TUI utils,
as well as a minimal base system ideal for servers. The minimal-live
image provides a full-featured console-based system with a particular
focus on accessibility.
