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.

Linux 4.20--rc76

Well, that's more like it. This is a *tiny* rc7, just how I like it. Maybe it's because everybody is too busy prepping for the holidays, and maybe it's because we simply are doing well.

The patch looks pretty small too, although it's skewed by a couple of bigger fixes (re-apply i915 workarounds after reset, and dm zoned bio completion fix). Other than that it's mainly all pretty small, and spread out (usual bulk of drivers, but some arch updates, filesystem fixes, core fixes, test updates..)
