It is planned for release in December. It will also have new security features, including encryption and digital signatures to ensure that downloaded packages are validated. GNU/Linux 4.0 will support 11 chip architectures altogether including AMD's Opteron server processor, Athlon 64 desktop, and notebook processor, and Turion 64 notebook processsor. The new release will use the Linux 2.6.17 version as the default kernel and for the installer, although a later version may be picked after a review in October.

It will use the GNU Compiler Collection 4.1 as default compiler.
