TeX Live 2021 for Debian

The release of TeX Live 2021 is already half a year away, but due to the delay of waiting for Debian/Bullseye release, we haven’t updated TeX Live in Debian for quite some time. But the waiting is over, today I uploaded the first packages of TeX Live 2021 to unstable.

All the changes listed in the upstream release blog apply also to the Debian packages.

I expect a few hiccups, but it is good to see it out of the door finally.

    Thank you Norbert for the work on this update!

    Is there a chance you could also update the context package (https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/context) with the TL2021 version or any newer as well (looks like there is no more direct link to the “current” version: http://www.pragma-ade.com/context/current/cont-tmf.zip only the “latest”: https://www.pragma-ade.nl/context/latest/cont-tmf.zip)? The current version should be 2021.03.05 (https://www.tug.org/svn/texlive/trunk/Master/texmf-dist/tex/context/base/mkiv/cont-new.mkiv), whilst the Debian package is still from the TL2020 version.
