Debian 12 release next weekend but still contains 100 known bugs unresolved



 

Debian 12 release next weekend but still contains 100 known bugs unresolved.

Debian 12, code-named “Bookworm,” will be released next Saturday (June 10), and despite the distribution’s reputation for being rock-solid, the latest version may still have as many as 100 bugs.

Paul Gevers from the Debian project mentioned the number of known bugs on the Debian mailing list, but said that the release will continue anyway.

 

 

Debian 12 release next weekend but still contains 100 known bugs unresolved.

Debian 12, code-named "Bookworm," will be released next Saturday (June 10), and despite the distribution's reputation for being rock-solid, the latest version may still have as many as 100 bugs.

Paul Gevers from the Debian project mentioned the number of known bugs on the Debian mailing list, but said that the release will continue anyway.

 

 

Once Debian 12 is installed on more computers after its release, users are likely to find more bugs that must be patched later and deployed as an update, Gevers said. Those bugs are listed in the release notes, so if stability is critical to you, check the release notes to check if you’re affected, he said.

 

The Debian project pushes out new ISO images every few months and marks them as a new point release, containing all the latest fixes up to that point.

Debian 12.1 will be released around July, so if you want more stability, don’t install Debian 12 until then and wait for the fixes to arrive, Gevers said.

 

“There are still about 100 known RC bugs affecting Bookworm, but we’ve embraced publishing with them,” says Paul Gevers. “Most of the issues will be mentioned in the release notes.” There is no doubt that as more systems run Bookworm, more issues will be discovered post-release. As always, we expect the first point releases of bookworm to appear a month or so after launch. “

 

Debian is not the most popular Linux distribution among end users, but it is often used as the basis for other desktop Linux distributions.

The most popular Linux distribution, Ubuntu, is based on Debian, and Linux Mint is based on Ubuntu. The Linux Mint team is also maintaining a Debian-based distribution in case any problems happen to Ubuntu.
