available directly from Debian’s mirrors.</p>
<p>Devuan decided to fork not only the base distribution, but also its governance, because Debian has made it difficult to avoid systemd as init, entangling the system with unnecessary dependencies. We encourage potential Devuan users who wish to install systemd to use Debian's installer, Debian's packages and Debian's mailing lists, all available directly from Debian's mirrors.</p>

<p>Devuan is the Debian that was and could have been. Our goal is to
provide a viable and sustainable alternative. It is a new path,

we were going to fork Debian. Well, we have done exactly that. It
has been a long process, but now over two years later, we proudly
present Devuan Jessie 1.0.0 Stable.</p>

<p>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.</p>

<p>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.</p>

<p>Devuan Jessie 1.0.0 Stable is a major milestone in the new path
drawn by the Devuan project and its development has provided an

whether to use a GNU+Linux system with or without systemd.</p>
<p>Devuan is about choice. We think people should be able to choose whether to use a GNU+Linux system with or without systemd.</p>

<p>Devuan decided to fork not only the base distribution, but also its
governance, because Debian has made it difficult to avoid systemd as
init, entangling the system with unnecessary dependencies and did so
despite widespread community concern. We encourage potential Devuan
users who wish to install systemd to use Debian’s installer, Debian’s
packages and Debian’s mailing lists, all available directly from
Debian’s mirrors.</p>
