The OS, like Ubuntu always launched with the latest stable release of the GNOME desktop environment and the new testing branch of Debian.
On of the back of the new GNOME upgrade, it was only a matter of time before news broke about a new release for the Parsix GNU/Linux operating system which came this morning via the developer’s Twitter profile. The post confirmed what most expected from any new Parsix release as it states that the new upgrade will ship with newest GNOME 3.20 Desktop environment and Linux Kernel version 4.4.
