The second maintenance release of the 5.0 series of NAV is now out, and what a busy week it has been!
The source code is available for download at GitHub .
New packages for Debian 9/10 (Stretch/Buster) are available in our APT repository  as usual.
Please also be extra aware of config file changes. Look out for `*.dpkg-dist` files in /etc/nav and make sure to update your running config.
The virtual appliance will be updated shortly.
Deprecation warning ===================
Python 2 reaches its end-of-life on **January 1, 2020**. NAV 5.0 therefore moves to Python 3, and as such, you will need at least Python 3.5 to run NAV.
Most of NAV will still run on Python 2 as of the 5.0 release, but from this point, Python 2 will be deprecated and we will start removing code that exists solely to keep compatibility with Python 2.
