This is a quick correction to <a href="https://kx.studio/News/?action=view&url=changes-in-kxstudio-repositories-2">yesterday's post regarding changes in the KXStudio repositories</a>.<br/>
I mentioned that the minimum required version was Debian 12 / Bookworm.<br/>
This is incorrect, the minimum is actually Debian 11 / Bullseye.
</p>
<p>
Apologies for the lapse, have a good day! :)

That last part is important - when 18.04 goes end-of-line, no new

And since the KXStudio project relies on those its packages, I need to update the base version from time to time in order to be able to keep building things.

If you need to ask why using PPAs and not something else, there just isn't another service that can do all that is required (that I know of).<br/>

But back to the topic at hand, moving up on the base version for KXStudio package builds means the user-facing minimum version also goes up.

Newly installed systems can no longer use the old variant of the KXStudio repositories.<br/>
The old 18.04-base packages are not going to be updated anymore.
