@HulaHoop Does it replace Whonix 14 for KVM? I don’t see an option to download Whonix 14 anymore, only this version, is it on purpose? Also, is there any option to download a CLI version for KVM?

I always like to make version available so user support is more manageable. Since 15 is functional it should be OK.

No, but if this is more widely requested I don’t see why not. I don’t mind running the build twice if there is a big no. of people depending on it. I guess KVM is a favorite of data-centers and a cli version hosting a HS is plausible usecase, but I need to know if this is how others feel.

Yes, I guess a good use case scenario would be for instance @acis request:

Also one could also run a XFCE gateway with minimum RAM.


Should I upgrade ASAP to Whonix 15 KVM ? or it’s just testing. And it’s okay if I use 2 more months Whonix 14 until Debian buster is released ?

Yes you should upgrade.

Hi @HulaHoop
Is there a version coming soon?

As soon as I have some free time I’ll upload a new one.
