In some sad news, the Parsix GNU/Linux distribution will be shutting down, probably before the conclusion of 2017. In a brief post on the Parsix Project News page, the team reports Parsix will be discontinued six months after the launch of Debian 9 "Stretch". "Parsix GNU/Linux project is going to shut down six months after the release of Debian GNU/Linux 9.0 a.k.a Stretch. Parsix GNU/Linux 8.15 (Nev) will be fully supported during this time and users should be able to upgrade their installations to Debian Stretch without any significant issues. We will make all necessary changes, and updates to ensure a smooth transition to Debian Stretch. We take this moment to thank all users and community members who supported this project throughout the years by using Parsix, making donations or spending their time to improve it. A more accurate time line will be announced once we have more information in regards to the official release date of Debian Stretch."
