Deepin 20 beta comes with a unified design style and redesigns the desktop environment and applications, bringing a new interactive experience. In addition to that, the repository and the underlying kernel are updated to Debian 10 and Kernel 5.3 respectively. The continuously optimized system offers a richer application ecosystem and better system stability. Also, there are some new apps for users.
Attractive desktop environment
DDE features a sleek new graphical interface, with rounded window corners, smooth, natural animation effects, an exquisite multitasking view, and clever colorful icons, all of which guarantee a very pleasant user experience.
A large number of wonderful native applications are pre-installed, including several new applications. Optimized design and interaction logic make them friendlier, more complete and consistent.
An updated kernel with great hardware support
The built-in kernel is updated to the latest version 5.3, which greatly improves the stability and compatibility of the system, and supports more hardware devices.
Debian 10 stable and reliable software repository
The software repository is based on Debian 10 now, which improves system stability and security, fixes security vulnerabilities early, and has better compatibility with third-party applications.

Most of this article is a translation of the official announcement posted at deepin.org.
This is a beta version intended for preliminary testing prior to the release of the final version, and does not reflect the quality and / or stability of the final product so you will encounter some flaws or errors.
We have already noticed that several of the translations are incomplete, or that corrections that have already been sent by the translation team have not been applied in this beta version, we hope to see them reflected in the final version.
Our Deepines repository does not work correctly in this beta, please do not use it in this version, for the release of the final version of Deepin 20 we will release Deepines 4.0 with full support for V20 and higher.
Because smart mirror repositories are under construction, there will be no smart mirror switch in this beta, and it will be available when construction is complete. Comments in the Deepin 20 beta app store are temporarily out of sync, so users cannot see the above comments, which will be available when sync is complete.
