Qubes OS 4.2.0-rc3 is available for testing
We announced RC2 approximately one week ago. Normally, RC2 would have been tested for approximately five weeks before we announced RC3. However, RC2 contained several bugs (listed below), some of which prevented certain users from testing it. These bugs have been fixed in RC3. We’ve decided to release RC3 early, as an exception to our usual policy, in order to get these fixes out as quickly as possible so that more users can test 4.2 for longer before the eventual stable release.
- Fixed: “Installer in R4.2 does not warn about incompatible hardware” (#8345)
- Fixed: “Wi-Fi firmware missing from default templates on 4.2.0-rc2 ISO” (#8452)
- Fixed: “Qubes R4.2.0-rc2 cannot be installed on legacy BIOS system” (#8462)
- Fixed: “R4.2 (rc1, rc2) unable to boot on Thinkpad T430 when UEFI is enabled” (#8464)
