From the release announcement:
“We are proud to announce the release of Neptune 7.5 ‘Ada’, the first service release of the Neptune 7 series. This version comes with the updates provided by Debian 11.4 ‘Bullseye’ that offer the latest and greatest in terms of security. We updated the Linux kernel to version 5.18 to provide better support for modern hardware and fixed some bugs with existing hardware support. We put effort in optimizing the performance of Neptune by providing tweaks to kernel that improve the write speed on USB thumb drives. Neptune 7.5 also provides a new solution for a complete system backup called Timeshift. It allows you to save a whole snapshot of your system and restore it even if your system is totally broken. You can even restore from a live system as long as you have the backup saved somewhere accessible. Some slight tweaks make it easier to work on the terminal.”

Neptune is a GNU/Linux distribution for desktops. It is based on Debian’s Stable branch, except for a newer kernel, some drivers and newer versions of popular applications, such as LibreOffice. It also ships with the latest version of the KDE desktop. The distribution’s main goals are to provide a good-looking general-purpose desktop with pre-configured multimedia playback and to offer an easy-to-use USB installer with a persistence option.
