Celebrating the release of Debian 10 "Buster":

  • In this release, GNOME defaults to using the Wayland display server instead of Xorg.
  • For those in security-sensitive environments AppArmor, a mandatory access control framework for restricting programs' capabilities, is installed and enabled by default.
  • Network filtering is based on the nftables framework by default.
  • Secure Boot support is included in this release for amd64, i386 and arm64 architectures and should work out of the box on most Secure Boot-enabled machines. This means users should no longer need to disable Secure Boot support in the firmware configuration.
  • The cups and cups-filters packages are installed by default in Debian 10 buster, giving users everything that is needed to take advantage of driverless printing.

We will be trying it out and copies will be available for people who can't or don't want to download it.

There will also be the usual casual hands-on workshop, Linux installation, configuration and assistance and advice. Bring your laptop if you need help with a particular issue. This will now occur BEFORE the talks from 12:30 to 14:00. The talks will commence at 14:00 (2pm) so there is time for people to have lunch nearby.

The meeting will be held at Infoxchange, 33 Elizabeth St. Richmond 3121.  Late arrivals please call (0421) 775 358 for access to the venue.

LUV would like to acknowledge Infoxchange for the venue.

Linux Users of Victoria is a subcommittee of Linux Australia.
