AWWWW YEAAAAHHHH!!! We're back at it again! Two releases in a week? "You must be crazy," they said. Yup. We are. Crazy about the community and crazy about ARM. Aren't you glad you ducked out of work early today?

Beta Release

The AlmaLinux OS Foundation is proud to announce AlmaLinux OS 8.4 Beta for ARM. We know you must be super stoked, and we are too, but we do need to remind everyone that this is a BETA release and should not be used for production installations. Grab it up, test it out, submit your Bug Reports and join the community to talk all about it.

Release Notes and More Information

You can read more about it by checking out the Release Notes. Since this is the first beta release for ARM that's pretty much it for now. Let's test!
