Alpine Linux 3.18.0

We are pleased to announce the release of Alpine Linux 3.18.0, the first in the v3.18 stable series. Highlights: Linux kernel 6.1 - with signed kernel modules; musl libc 1.2.4 - now with TCP fallback in DNS resolver; Python 3.11; Ruby 3.2; Node.js (current) 20.1; GNOME 44; Go 1.20; KDE Plasma 5.27; Rust 1.69; Experimental support for unattended installs via tiny-cloud. Significant changes: kernel modules are now signed; verified modules are not enforced by default, so 3rd party modules with akms still works. All packages for ppc64le, x86, and x86_64 was linked with DT_RELR. This should have reduced size of compiled binaries. Python pre-compiled files (pyc) are now shipped in separate packages. It is now possible to avoid install those and save space by doing apk add !pyc. Official announcement Download Alpine Linux
