This the first time we’ll be flying Linux on Mars. We’re actually running on a Linux operating system. The software framework that we’re using is one that we developed at JPL for cubesats and instruments, and we open-sourced it a few years ago.

Changed security archive layout

For bullseye, the security suite is now named bullseye-security instead of codename/updates and users should adapt their APT source-list files accordingly when upgrading.

Non-free firmware moved to its own component in the archive

Repository Debian bookworm changed its firmware component value from non-free to non-free-firmware
