Deepin, which might be the greatest identified and widespread china Linux distro, simply launched its model 20.2.2, and though the model quantity doesn’t level to a spherical replace, it’s a main launch for a number of causes.
The primary has to do with the title of this notice: Deepin is launching the App Retailer, one which not solely comes with a brand new design, and that as is common on this system, may be very properly cared for and appears greater than lovely, however it is usually launching help for Android functions.
Neither in Deepin nor in Home windows 11, however the foundations are already there
If the advert keep in mind what Microsoft unveiled about Home windows 11 on June 24th, it’s as a result of it leaves the identical style within the mouth. The home windows system retailer will assist you to obtain Android functions which can be put in by the Amazon retailer and can run natively.
Nevertheless, no less than for now, within the first preview model of Home windows 11 that help will not be but included. The “similar” occurs with this new Deepin app retailer. I write the “similar” in quotes, as a result of the help that Deepin will supply is considerably completely different, however it isn’t to get too excited in the meanwhile.
The mission builders clarify that Android functions will be put in unfastened and in containers immediately from the Deepin App Retailer. Android containers solely help Linux kernel 5.10 (LTS), and help in 5.12 is within the works.
Now, how do they depend from MuyLinuxThis help, though it exists and is introduced, doesn’t but imply an excessive amount of since there may be not a single app and the shop is barely accessible in Chinese language. Just a little tough to navigate for a western person, in all probability.
The brand new model of Deepin that additionally releases a kernel, help for Safe Boot, and an enormous listing of enhancements and bug fixes, will be downloaded from a number of websites linked to the official Web, together with BitTorrent and Google Drive.
