The latest release of SpiralLinux, version 12.231008, is now available for download from their official website. This release, based on Debian 12, includes package updates from Debian 12.2, along with a bug fix. Notably, the release cautions against using Rufus, LinuxLive USB Creator (LiLi), Ventoy, and Unetbootin for creating bootable USB devices due to reported failures. Some key changes in this release include the prevention of installation of the raspi-firmware package, security updates, and bug fixes from Debian 12.2. SpiralLinux continues to emphasize simplicity and out-of-the-box usability across various desktop environments while maintaining reliance on official Debian package repositories. Existing users can upgrade to Debian 12 or other Debian releases as they become available in the Debian repositories. However, there is a note about a bug in the "Software & Updates" GUI tool in Debian 12 and how to address it using SpiralLinux.
