    Sorry, but it has not been released yet - just a release candidate, not a final version. https://trisquel.info/en/download

      The images pointed to from the download page are marked RCs from earlier this month while directly from http://jenkins.trisquel.info/makeiso/iso/ as linked in the article are ISO images as of today and no longer have any RC marking.

        Maybe they need 18 days needed to write announce Because 18 months delay, images finally happened at 18th day in a month of 18th year in this millenium...


        What is trisquel-mini iso there? Does not look like so mini. Ah, OK that is lubuntu - so mini is lxde and mate is big So, trisquel-netinst is actualy mini.iso... figured out that

            Nobody likes blobs, but are they stripping away microcode updates for spectre/meltdown too?

            We're running on blobs, updated or not. I don't get it.

              Last time I checked the kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git repository,
              the microcodes there - especially "amd-ucode" - are like 3 years old.
              Linux tries to solve these problems but not by the microcode updates
