Microsoft Issues Big CBL-Mariner 2.0 Linux Distribution Update
CBL-Mariner 2.0.20221029 was released on Thursday as the newest monthly-ish update to this Linux distribution that has roles within Azure, WSL, and elsewhere throughout the Redmond company. This update has added a "kernel-drivers-gpu" package for providing the GPU DRM kernel drivers for hardware, which is interesting to see and more than likely for server / data center accelerators rather than any growing desktop bare metal use-cases, but we'll see.
The new CBL-Mariner 2.0 update also has added Microsoft GPG keys to the installer environment, various Python additions, fixed an installer regression, and updated numerous packages. There are also a number of package updates to provide security fixes.
Downloads and more details on this CBL-Mariner 2.0 update to kick off November at Microsoft can be found via GitHub.
