Two days ago we brought up Devuan, the systemd-free fork of Debian turned two years old, and now it seems they are celebrating the anniversary by the release of the second beta.

The Devuan Beta 1 release happened back in April and is now finally succeeded by a second beta.

Devuan Jessie Beta 2 was uploaded yesterday, 29 November, to the Devuan Download Zone. Stop by there if you want a systemd-free version of Debian Jessie. As of writing the home page has yet to be updated for reflecting the new beta.
