Devuan Jessy 1.0.0 released; A fork of Debian without systemd

Closing all major bug reported in last two years, Devuan team has announced release of Devuan Jessy 1.0.0, first stable release of Devuan GNU+Linux operating system. Devuan is a fork of Debian without systemd.

It was in november 2014, when Devuan project announced their plan to fork Debian, the universal operating system, without systemd. It is expected that, removing systemd will provide users with more control over their systems. Over the two years, Devuan team was closely working to accomplish this mission and Devuan 1.0.0 release marks a major milestone in history of this project.

As the code name denotes, Devuan Jessy 1.0.0 is based on Debian 8.x Jessy series and existing Debian 8.x users can flawlessly migrate to Devuan system. Also, there is a safe upgrade path from Debian 7.x Wheezy series.

Devuan Jessy 1.0.0 is planned to be a long term supported (LTS) release and it will enjoy regular security updates, patches and release upgrades from the project. This will be supported beyond regular support period of Debian 8.x Jessy series.
There have been no significant bug reports since Devuan Jessie RC2 was announced only three weeks ago and the list of release critical bugs is now empty. So finally Devuan Jessie Stable is ready for release! As promised, this will also be a Long-Term-Support (LTS) release. Our team will participate in providing patches, security updates, and release upgrades beyond the planned lifespan of Debian Jessie.

A lot of appreciation has been coming our way in the last few weeks. And now with this Stable release we anticipate that even the most skeptical among private and enterprise users will finally be ready to jump on the Devuan train.
