    The Deepin 20.1 Debian-based Linux distro has been released as a new installation media packed with performance improvements, new apps, and updated internals. Explore these new features and improvements in this 9 to 5 Linux article.

    Based on Debian GNU/Linux 10.6 “Buster” repositories, Deepin 20.1 is now shipping with Linux kernel 5.8 as an alternative kernel that’s supposed to offer support for newer hardware components, as well as the long-term supported Linux 5.4 LTS kernel series, which remains the default for new installations.

    As I reported two months ago, Linux kernel 5.8 reached end of life, which means it no longer receives updates and security fixes. However, the Deepin team said that users who install Deepin 20.1 and existing Deepin 20 users will get the latest Linux kernel 5.10 LTS through regular system updates in the near future, along with all the updates from Debian GNU/Linux 10.7.
