Debian 12 (Bookworm), the next stable version of Debian, is planned to be released on 2023-06-10 [1].

FreedomBox can update itself to use the new version of Debian after it is released. To enable this feature, on the System -> Update page, ensure that both "Enable auto-update" and "Enable auto-update to next stable release" options are enabled. Note that there must also be 5 GB free space on the system disk, in order for the automatic update to proceed. See the manual page [2] for more details.

Before the automatic update to the next release starts, it is recommended to have the following in place:
- Backups, stored to a remote location or secondary disk.
- Storage Snapshots
