Weekly Status Report: 2019-06-02

Hello all!

This week saw the release of Adélie Linux 1.0-BETA3! We have spent the past weekend working on closing issues that the community has found, and we’re excited to have already made progress on many of them. Because of this, we are planning to release an official 1.0-BETA3 Update 1 later this month. We are also very excited to have been mentioned in last week’s issue of DistroWatch!

APK Tools

We reported and wrote a patch for Alpine bug #10532, which causes some Adélie Linux computers to fail to upgrade from one version to another. We hope a version of APK Tools with this patch will be released soon.
