Release 2023_020 (2023-08-15)#

Impact#

  • [NixOS 23.05] This is the first update using the new maintenance code introduced with the last release. Machines will reboot to activate the changed kernel shortly after the update maintenance activity has finished, without announcing the reboot separately. In the future, we will only explicitly mention service restarts here when there’s no reboot planned. See our new automated maintenance documentation for more details about how this works.
