Devuan Release Information

Current stable release is Devuan Jessie 1.0.

Devuan suites

Devuan development takes place in suites that indicate a level of stability:

Devuan Releases / Codenames

Devuan release Status Planet nr. Debian release
Jessie Stable 10464 Jessie
Ascii In development 3568 Stretch
Beowulf Coming soon 38086 Buster
Ceres Unstable 1 Sid

Since the stable suite is eventually replaced by the testing suite, referring to a specific Devuan version only by suite can be confusing.

To solve that, each version of Devuan gets a unique release name or codename that follows it as it matures.

An exception to this is unstable, which always has the codename ceres with sid as an alias for compatibility reasons.

Devuan release names are chosen from Minor Planet Center Names List:

When ascii is ready, it will become stable, jessie will become old-stable, beowulf will become testing and a future release name starting with letter the C will be picked.
