Arch Linux Release Engineering (aka releng) is a collection of software projects that build and release Arch Linux images for the purposes of installation, recovery, deployment and/or use.
The releases can be downloaded from Arch Linux Downloads.
This page aims to list all the involved software projects and document their release processes.
ISO, bootstrap tarball and netboot artifacts
The ISO, bootstrap tarball and netboot artifacts are created using Archiso.
Arch developer Pierre Schmitz builds them and uploads the release via archiso-manager.
In the future they will be build inside the releng project's CI pipeline and the release artifacts will be uploaded to the mirrors and promoted in ArchWeb using .
Virtual machine images
arch-boxes provides automated builds of the Arch Linux releases for different providers and post-processors.
The files can be found in the
/images directory on mirrors.
Netboot images are created using and served as static files by ArchWeb. The archlinux.ipxe script is served by ArchWeb as well, but due to iPXE requiring weaker TLS ciphers, it is served from a different subdomain: https://ipxe.archlinux.org/releng/netboot/archlinux.ipxe.
