Deepin 20.1 has Arrived

Jan 01, 2021

Debian-based Deepin 20.1 has been released with some interesting new features.

In typical fashion, the developers of Deepin Linux have opted to take the road less traveled and release a version of their Linux distribution that shuns the typical and offers up a release that will turn heads and have some open source enthusiasts shaking their heads in wonder.

Whether that’s a good or a bad thing, is up to the beholder.

Outside of the usual, shiny new things, such as being based on Debian 10 and including kernel 5.8 (and the regular bits of Linux under the hood), Deepin has decided to create their own takes on the web browser, email client, disk manager, and a few other pieces of software. So now Deepin users will get the chance to experience Deepin Browser and Deepin Mail.

Of course, the improvements and new features don’t end with Deepin’s own applications. Added to Deepin 20.1 is touch gesture support,  a number of new elements in the Deepin Control Center, full text search in the Deepin File Manager, restriction rules for share names, DJVU images can be previewed, a number of new features for the voice notes application, as well as numerous bug fixes and optimizations.

Naturally, because this is Linux, if you’re not happy with using Deepin’s take on the web browser and email client, you can always install the tools you prefer.
