The Devuan project, a fork of Debian which does not feature the systemd init software, has released its first beta. The new development release strives to supply a safe upgrade path from Debian Wheezy for people who wish to avoid installing systemd packages on their system. "Debian GNU+Linux is a fork of Debian without systemd, on its way to become much more than that. This Beta release marks an important milestone towards the sustainability and the continuation of Devuan as an universal base distribution. Today Devuan Jessie provides continuity as a safe upgrade path from Debian Wheezy and a flawless switch from Debian Jessie avoiding most of the problems introduced by systemd." The release announcement contains additional information and download links.
