A fully free, stable, secure, simple, lightweight and long-term support distribution

You've reached the website for Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre operating system. The Hyperbola Project is a community driven effort to provide a fully free (as in freedom) operating system that is stable, secure, simple, lightweight that tries to Keep It Simple Stupid (KISS) under a Long Term Support (LTS) way.

Derived from Arch plus stability and security from Debian, Hyperbola provides packages from it that meet the GNU Free System Distribution Guidelines (GNU FSDG) and replacements for the packages that don't meet this requirement. Packages are provided for the i686 and x86_64 architectures.

Our community is friendly and helpful. Please hop on IRC channel and check out our forums and mailing lists to get your feet wet. Also glance through our wiki if you want to learn more about Hyperbola.

Happy birthday Hyperbola!

2018-04-15

We are pleased to celebrate the first Hyperbola's birthday!

One year ago, our founders began the official development of Hyperbola launching its official IRC channel in Freenode and webserver (located in Bissen, Luxembourg) on Gandi. This spawned a new era in the history of distributions by merging 2 different concepts under freedom principles; the Arch model plus the Debian development model.

A lot has happened to the project and its community in this time such as the official support to the Init Freedom Campaign, new aliases for our releases using galaxy names as codenames and a build server donation to improve our structure for future releases and new ports like Hyperbola GNU/Hurd.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all our users, contributors, support staff, security team, artists, developers, and of course you.

All of you are helping to make Hyperbola a great experience and a great project! Thank you!

The decision means that the Milky Way v0.2 will be the last version supporting OpenSSL.

LibreSSL is a version of the TLS/crypto stack forked from OpenSSL in 2014, with goals of modernizing the codebase, improving security, and applying best practice development processes.

It was forked from the OpenSSL in April 2014 as a response by OpenBSD developers to the ...
