It is with huge pleasure that the Debian GNU/Hurd team announces the
release of Debian GNU/Hurd 2023.  This is a snapshot of Debian "sid" at
the time of the stable Debian "bookworm" release (June 2023), so it is
mostly based on the same sources.  It is not an official Debian release,
but it is an official Debian GNU/Hurd port release.

The installation ISO images can be downloaded from cdimage
in the NETINST and netboot Debian flavors. Besides the friendly Debian
installer, a pre-installed disk image is also available, making it even
easier to try Debian GNU/Hurd. The easiest way to run it is inside a VM
such as qemu

Debian GNU/Hurd is currently available for the i386 architecture with
about 65% of the Debian archive, and more to come!

* APIC, SMP, and 64bit support was improved a lot: they now do boot a
complete Debian system, but some bugs remain to be fixed.

* The rump-based userland disk driver seems to be working fine now, we
can now boot a system without any Linux driver in the mach kernel: mach
then only drives the CPU, memory, clock and irqs!

* Many fixes, including some important security fixes.

Please make sure to read the configuration information
the FAQ (http://www.gnu.org/software/hurd/faq.html) (or its latest
version ()http://darnassus.sceen.net/~hurd-web/faq/), and the translator
to get a grasp of the great features of GNU/Hurd.

We would like to thank all the people who have worked on GNU/Hurd
(http://www.gnu.org/software/hurd/history.html) in the past.
There were not many people at any given time (and still not many people
today, please join
(http://www.gnu.org/software/hurd/contributing.html)!), but in the end a
lot of people have contributed one way or the other. Thanks everybody!
