Information about NixOS 18.03

NixOS is an independently developed GNU/Linux distribution that aims to improve the state of the art in system configuration management. In NixOS, the entire operating system, including the kernel, applications, system packages and configuration files, are built by the Nix package manager. Nix stores all packages in isolation from each other; as a result there are no /bin, /sbin, /lib or /usr directories and all packages are kept in /nix/store instead. Other innovative features of NixOS include reliable upgrades, rollbacks, reproducible system configurations, source-based model with binaries, and multi-user package management. Although NixOS is a research project, it is a functional and usable operating system that includes hardware detection, KDE as the default desktop, and systemd for managing system services.

The NixOS project has released a new version, NixOS 18.03, which includes version 2.0 of the Nix package manager minor upgrades to the GNOME and KDE Plasma desktops along with several new services. "In addition to numerous new and upgraded packages, this release has the following highlights: End of support is planned for end of October 2018, handing over to 18.09. Platform support: x86_64-linux and x86_64-darwin since release time (the latter isnt NixOS, really). Binaries for aarch64-linux are available, but no channel exists yet, as its waiting for some test fixes. Nix now defaults to 2.0; see its release notes. Core version changes: Linux kernel 4.9 to 4.14, glibc 2.25 to 2.26, gcc 6 to 7, systemd 234 to 237. Desktop version changes: GNOME 3.24 to 3.26, (KDE) Plasma Desktop 5.10 to 5.12.
