I just released a new version of distri.
The focus of this release lies on:
a better developer experience, allowing users to debug any installed package without extra setup steps
performance improvements in all areas (starting programs, building distri packages, generating distri images)
better tooling for keeping track of upstream versions
See the release notes for more details.
The distri research linux distribution project was started in 2019 to research whether a few architectural changes could enable drastically faster package management.
While the package managers in common Linux distributions (e.g. apt, dnf, …) top out at data rates of only a few MB/s, distri effortlessly saturates 1 Gbit, 10 Gbit and even 40 Gbit connections, resulting in fast installation and update speeds.
