template set in the image for uploading Microsoft Group Policies to the
* Image 10.1 includes the text mode of the GRUB loader. It has become
more convenient to install the system on a server without a video card
thanks to a separate item in the bootloader menu.

Cyrillic; the convenience of switching and positioning the keyboard
layout indicator (greeter) upgrade. Virt-manager 3.2 for creating

* The Epm package (eepm-yum) has been added to the image repository as a

New Application Versions
The distribution kit contains packages of current versions for the
system environment based on the Linux kernel 5.10. The kernel 5.15 was
added. Php 7 was replaced by php 8. The distribution kit includes
PostgreSQL 14 packages in variants with and without 1C patches.
Packages with the image kernels modules have been added to the image to
work independently from the network repository when installing
additional modules with drivers. When downloading the installer in
Legacy mode, grub-pc 2.06 is used. Thus, both Legacy and UEFI use GRUB.
Functionality similar to alt-p10-builder
(https://www.altlinux.org/Starterkits/builder ) is achieved by selecting
the Package Collector option in the installer. The builder-useradd 1.5
package will be installed in the image.
Corrective changes have been made in order to speed up the installation
process in a minimal profile. The installer menu item Token Support has
been added to the Server Applications group (isbc-pkcs11 4.9, opensc,
pcsc-tools, openssl, pam_pkcs11). The Mediawiki and ALT Domain Server
(ldap+kerberos) installer items have been removed.
Multipath (0.9) is configured to work by default similarly to the ALT
Virtualization Server. Connection broker and tunnel for creating and
managing virtual workstations OpenUDS 3.5.0 updated.
The SWAP partition is provided by default. The image supports a Btrfs
partition (btrfs-progs 5.19) at the installation stage.
The AArch64 image contains the xor-neon core module, so it possible to
install the system on RAID 4/5/6 to increase fault tolerance and
performance. In AArch64 image the Chromium 107.0 web browser is selected
to work on the Internet. Jitsi Meet is not compatible with AArch64.
To HAProxy servers configure haproxy 2.6 and keepalived 2.2 are installed.
The MATE desktop environment has been updated to version 1.26,
Sane-airscan is installed for scanner recognition (Samsung ProXpress
M3870FD, Pantum M7100DN, Samsung ProXpress M3870FD, Pantum M7100DN, Oki
MB472, Kyocera ECOSYS-M2040dn, Brother MFC L2720DW).
