Sparky 2023.10, released on October 11, 2023, introduces several updates and improvements. It features Linux kernel 6.5 as the default, includes updated packages from Debian 'trixie' and Sparky 'sisters' testing repositories, and boasts new additions like the rpi-imager utility to all images. The release also incorporates various desktop environments, such as LXQt, KDE Plasma, MATE, Xfce, and MinimalGUI (Openbox) and MinimalCLI (text mode). Notable software updates include GCC 13.2.0 as the default compiler, Firefox 115.3.0 ESR, Thunderbird 115.3.1, and various desktop environment updates. If you have Sparky rolling installed, updating is sufficient, and a reinstallation is unnecessary. The live user password remains "live." You can find the new semi-rolling ISO images on the download page.
