Debian Adds Support For LoongArch CPUs

Published on August 25, 2023

Recently, the Debian team has announced that it will include the LoongArch architecture in a new Debian port. In addition to porting the operating system to LoongArch, RISC-V processors were also recently added to the official support architecture in an attempt to make the operating system compatible with a wider range of platforms. It was announced that after "enough packages have been built for the port to be self-hosting", the team will plan to "replace these two builds with real hardware hosted at Loongson".
