The first feature release of the 5.10 series of NAV is now out!

The source code is available for download at GitHub.

New packages for Debian 10 (Buster) and 11 (Bullseye) are available in our APT repository as usual. We haven’t started building packages for Debian 12 (Bookworm) yet, as NAV does not yet support running under Python 3.11.

Do note that 5.10 is the last series we will package for Debian 10, as NAV 5.11 will drop support for Python versions older than 3.9

Please be extra aware of config file changes. Look out for *.dpkg-dist files in /etc/nav and make sure to update your running config.
