The latest version of the distribution, heads 0.4, is based
on Devuan's Testing branch and makes an effort to reduce
both the size of the live ISO and memory requirements.
"heads has been rebased on Devuan Beowulf (Testing), which
brings us current-day software and no planned obsolecence.
Our new init system is SysV init combined with OpenRC. This
is a modern approach to init and it's working quite stable.
heads does not depend on Debian's live-boot/live-config
anymore. Instead, we have a minimal way of bringup that is a
lot more auditable than the thousands of lines of spaghetti
shell scripts Debian is able to produce. This release also
removes some big software like Evince, in order to replace
it with more minimal replacements - in this case Zathura.
More can be seen in the git commits of heads' build system."
