New features 10.1

* Support for installing the system by the Ventoy added.
* Webkiosk mode added: it is possible to install the system for limited 
use where only a web browser is available to the user.
* LiveCD added to the install image for opportunity to check the 
operability of the bootloader before installation.
* The distribution includes the systemd-oomd free memory monitoring 
service. It is a component that improves system behavior related to lack 
of memory. At the same time, for the convenience of tracking oomd 
actions a user notification is implemented when applications are aborted 
by the oomd service.
* BTRFS subvolume support during installation. It is a modern copy on 
write (CoW) filesystem for Linux aimed at implementing advanced features 
while also focusing on fault tolerance and easy administration. The 
security benefit of using BTRFS is the creation of a restore point 
before updating the system.
* Automatic disk partitioning profile for Timeshift added. This program 
is designed to create snapshots of system files and settings. In the 
event of a system failure system files are restored, and user data 
remains up to date, if it was not damaged.
* Discover App Center can launch System Restore when upgrade failure is
