I'd like to announce NixOS 16.09 beta in the name of community.
This release will bring two major changes:
- multiple outputs, reducing runtime closure size (sometimes even by half)
- security hardening flags
Please upgrade channels as usual and test:
$ nix-channel --add https://nixos.org/channels/nixos-16.09 nixos
$ nixos-rebuild switch --upgrade
I'd like to point out two serious bugs that you might hit:
- dbus will fail to reload, see
- make sure /var/empty doesn't have write permissions set otherwise sshd
won't start, see https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/pull/18365
If you'd like to help out, test and check the github bug tracker under
As usual, we're working on getting build failures down:
Final is set to be release on 29th September.
I've also finally put together a PR that documents the release process, any
feeback is welcome (it's still far from perfect):
PS: 16.09-small channel will be also created once container tests are fixed
