In the early hours of Sunday morning (my time), Debian 10 (buster) was released. It’s amazing to be a part of an organisation where so many people work so hard to pull together and make something like this happen. Creating and supporting a stable release can be tedious work, but it’s essential for any kind of large-scale or long-term deployments. I feel honored to have had a small part in this release

My primary focus area for this release was to get Debian live images in a good shape. It’s not perfect yet, but I think we made some headway. The out of box experiences for the desktop environments on live images are better, and we added a new graphical installer that makes Debian easier to install for the average laptop/desktop user.

    First of all I want to thank Debian’s Release Team. Whenever there was something to unblock for Buster, I always got feedback within hours and in almost all cases the package could just migrate to testing. Good communication and clear rules helped a lot to make the whole freeze a great experience.
