Endless OS 4.0.8 was released on September 8th, 2022.
For full details on what's new in Endless OS 4, please see the release notes for Endless OS 4.0.0.
Endless OS 4.0.9 reintroduce OS and app usage metrics into our anonymous metrics system, which were removed in the initial releases of Endless OS 4 while they were reengineered to summarize the data on each user's computer rather than on our server.
These metrics events report the time spent using the OS and each app in any given day or month, including when the computer is offline. As with other metrics, no personal information is included, and once sent to our server the data points cannot be associated with one another or with any particular computer.
As always, you can disable anonymous usage metrics in Settings → Privacy → Metrics. Developers and advanced users can find more information in the documentation for our open-source metrics server.
If you want to test beta releases of Endless OS, follow these instructions.
