Signed Q4.1 alpha iso

I’m just following up on this: https://www.mail-archive.com/qubes-devel@googlegroups.com/msg04607.html

It would be great to have a signed alpha iso for Q4.1. I wouldn’t mind running Q4.1 on a secondary machine, even if it breaks big time sometimes, but I would prefer to know that what I’m installing was built in a trusted environment and can be verified before I install it. This would enable me to provide feedback and submit bug reports. But I totally understand if the developers are already getting too much feedback to deal with :slight_smile:

Thanks for your hard work!

In our process for new releases, the release candidate stage features a signed ISO for broader testing by users who don’t want to build Qubes themselves, so you could wait for that.

Any hints on which year we will see 4.1? Next or 2021 or even later? :frowning:

When a release schedule becomes available, you will be able to see it here:

I’m afraid I do not have any information beyond that.

You can also see the progress towards the 4.1 milestone (in terms of open issues). Find it here.

Here is the long requested alpha build: https://ftp.qubes-os.org/iso/Qubes-R4.1.0-alpha20201014-x86_64.iso and its signature: https://ftp.qubes-os.org/iso/Qubes-R4.1.0-alpha20201014-x86_64.iso.asc. This isn’t “release candidate”-stable yet, but most of the things should work already.

Thanks a lot! :slight_smile:

(looking at the click counters is a little strange, though…)

I have been using R4.1 for a while now, without any major issues :slight_smile:

EDIT: But I haven’t tried the shiny new GuiVM yet.
