Microsoft Issues First Production Release Of Its CBL-Mariner 2.0 Linux Distribution
Since the end of last year Microsoft has been quietly working on CBL-Mariner 2.0 and has offered public access in a "preview" state with an ISO and its package archive. Today marks the first production release of CBL-Mariner 2.0.
CBL-Mariner 2.0 has a variety of package updates with major version bumps compared to what has been shipped in CBL-Mariner 1.0 stable. However, as of writing Microsoft has yet to put out any formal change-log / release announcement to detail all of their CBL-Mariner 2.0 changes in full. With CBL-Mariner 2.0, the Linux 5.15 LTS kernel is being used as a base.
CBL-Mariner 2.0 can be downloaded from GitHub. Both AArch64 and x86_64 architectures continue to be supported by this Microsoft Linux distribution.
