&lt;p&gt;AIMS Desktop follows the Debian releases and we aim to release a new major version along with
every major Debian release. We also aim to release at least an updated version with the beginning
of the academic intakes at AIMS (which happens in January and August every year). Since Debian releases
aren&amp;rsquo;t entirely predictable, this means that there will typically be 3-4 AIMS Desktop releases during
a Debian release cycle depending on Debian&amp;rsquo;s release dates.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;li&gt;This is our first public, Debian-based release. In the past, AIMS Desktop was based on Ubuntu.
We changed to Debian for its
&lt;a href=&#34;https://www.debian.org/social_contract&#34;&gt;friendlier licensing conditions&lt;/a&gt;.
In this release, we aim to match the futures and usability of previous AIMS Desktop releases.&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;li&gt;This release will feature Sagemath and Jupyter Notebook installed directly from the Debian archives.&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;li&gt;The goal is also to have this release available on this site, world-wide available for free
to anyone who would like to use it.&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;/ul&gt;

&lt;li&gt;We aim to include the AIMS Desktop meta-packages in the Debian repositories so that we can build AIMS
desktop entirely from the Debian repositories. The goal is that we buidl AIMS Desktop entirely
from Debian packages and gain the status of a pure blend (&lt;a href=&#34;https://www.debian.org/blends/&#34;&gt;https://www.debian.org/blends/&lt;/a&gt;).&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;li&gt;More details to follow.&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;/ul&gt;
