Qubes OS 4.1.2 has been released!

We’re pleased to announce the stable release of Qubes 4.1.2! This release aims to consolidate all the security patches, bug fixes, and upstream template OS upgrades that have occurred since the initial Qubes 4.1.0 release. Our goal is to provide a secure and convenient way for users to install (or reinstall) the latest stable Qubes release with an up-to-date ISO.

Qubes 4.1.2 is available on the  downloads page.

Existing installations

If you are already using any version of Qubes 4.1 (including 4.1.0, 4.1.1, 4.1.2-rc1, and 4.1.2-rc2), then you should simply  update normally (which includes  upgrading any EOL templates you might have) in order to make your system effectively equivalent to this stable Qubes 4.1.2 release. No reinstallation or other special action is required.

New installations

If you would like to install Qubes OS for the first time or perform a clean reinstallation on an existing system, there has never been a better time to do so! Simply  download the Qubes 4.1.2 ISO and follow our  installation guide.
