VPS Debian 8
New template Debian 8.7 is now available for deployment on your cloud server. Debian 8.7 was released January 14th, 2017. Debian 8.0 was initially released on April 26th, 2015. Debian 8 comes with a bunch of updates including:
- Linux kernel 3.16.x
- Updated desktop environments
- LibreOffice 4.3.3
- Educational toolbox GCompris 14.12
- New boot framework systemd
- Debian Jessie includes about 42000 packages available for installation.
Among other changes worth to mention are changes in ssh. The root user is no longer allowed to login via SSH with password. The old default PermitRootLogin yes has been replaced with PermitRootLogin without-password, so ssh-keys will still work.
