Debian Linux manages inter-package relationships to ensure system consistency across upgrades. Initial Arm support was contributed in 2000, while AArch64 support became available as a stable version with Debian version 8. 


Debian versions

The Debian project releases stable versions regularly, including images for AArch64, armel, and armhf. The Debian unstable branch, codenamed sid, enables developers to experiment with new features, or support and test with new platforms or versions of processor architecture.

Arm ports

There is an ongoing effort to port Debian GNU or Linux to various versions of the Arm Architecture. Arm and its partners contribute to these efforts, along with Linaro and the broader community. 

Developers can find status updates and a list of available hardware on the project website as well as through a variety of communications channels, including Internet Relay Chat (IRC) and several mailing lists.
