Grml: The new version 2020.06 'Ausgehfuahangl' has been released

Grml is a live operating system based on Linux, which was created specifically for administrators of various systems. However, although it is based on Debian, this feature is rarely updated, compared to Debian which often receives updates.

Today, almost two years after the last update of Grml, Michael Prokop, head developer of the operating system, announced the release of the new version - Grml 2020.06 'Ausgehfuahangl'.

The new operating system is based on a testing distribution Debian 11 'bullseye'. As a result, the operating system now uses the Debian core and packages, instead of the old custom kernel. In addition, the latest version contains 30 new Debian packages. Some of the most important packages added are: avahi-utils, borgbackup, cloud-init, iperf3, qemu-system-gui, qrencode, mate, zstd and wireguard. Detailed list of all packages that were 'stolen' from it Debian, you can find here.

Along with the addition of new packages, many of Grml's old packages have been updated. Some examples are dash, fuse3, vim-gtk3, ruby2.7, and python3.8.

Because h python2 stopped developing in early 2020, Grml 2020.06 no longer supports this language as well as its tools. However, all tools such as grml2usb, grml-paste and grml-x have been integrated into python 3.8.

In addition, the latest version of the operating system also offers cloud-init support, which can be used in various network configurations, SSH access key, and SSH hostname. You can enable this service, using the option services = cloud-init , at bootup time. However, if you want static network configuration, you must select nonetworking services = cloud-init, networking.

Another major change in version v2020.06, is the new default mount point of the system. The operating system now uses the mount point / lib / live / mount / medium, instead / run / live / medium.
