Introducing the Raspberry Pi OS fork
On December 2, 2021, the Raspberry Pi OS for Raspberry Pi split into two branches, the Buster branch and the Bullseye branch.
The Buster branch is a continuation of the old system, which is more stable and uses raspicam as the default camera subsystem.
The Bullseye branch adds some new features, including KMS as the default display driver and libcamera as the default camera subsystem.
