Version 2.4 has been released. Pick it up here


Raspbian Server Edition is Raspian with a lot of the GUI and other non-essential utilities stripped out. It’s meant to be used as an easy to deploy base for servers of any kind. It keeps the core of Raspbian with no extra utilities slapped on.


Raspbian Server Edition 2.3 is based on the 2013-02-09 release of Raspbian. Disk usage is down to around 570 megabytes.

I’ve stripped out approx 283 packages in this release. The full list can be found here.

An image is also available for your downloading pleasure.
The tar.gz version can be found here

      Not sure unfortunately, but the package list has all the descriptions still so you could probably check that out for information.

      Once you have the list, feel free to send it through to me and I can spin up a “Raspbian GPIO Edition” if you want 😀
