Devuan has reached a full release version, though the beta was a darned find piece of work. I upgraded from the beta using the commands

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
apt-get dist-upgrade
apt-get autoclean
apt-get autoremove

In case you don’t know (and there is a good chance you don’t unless you are in my Linux World), Devuan is a fork of Debian without SystemD. It still uses SystemV, because many folks have issues (mostly philosophical because SystemD, however annoying it can be, does indeed work) with SystemD.

Give it a try. It installs like butter.

H/T to SystemAU (NSFW–those Aussies swear bigly) for informing me that Devuan was out of beta.
