Debian 6.0 Squeeze expected to be released by the end of the yearâ if all goes well

,----[ Quote ]
| The Debian release team recently announced 
| the current status of the next Debian 
| release Squeeze. The team just finished the 
| work on some major parts like completing the 
| changes to run init scripts in parallel, 
| transition to eglibc into testing, GNOME 
| 2.30 and KDE 4.4.3. The next big step is to 
| make Python 2.6 the default python version 
| for sqeeeze and based on Adam Barratt 
| estimation this could be finished sometime 
| in late August, and at that time to freeze 
| the release.

| Developed by C-DAC (Centre for Development 
| of Advanced Computing), it's yet another 
| Debian fork with packages more dated than 
| the current Debian stable, Lenny (Remember, 
| Squeeze is close to freezing and is 
| unofficially ready for mass consumption). 
| BOSS' software stack has all the usual 
| suspects such as - Web server, proxy server, 
| Database server, Mail server, Network 
| server, File and Print server, SMS server, 
| LDAP server, plus all major Indian language 
| packs. However, all these and the underlying 
| kernel, desktop environments and userland is 
| very old. Now, the latest, at version 3.0, 
| it still sticks to linux 2.6.22, xorg 1.3, 
| gnome 2.20, OOo 2.2 and FF 3.

Debian Squeeze Pre-review

,----[ Quote ]
| Every two years or so, Debian puts out a new
| "stable" release. This is my favorite
| distribution because of the minimal number of
| bugs and the huge software repositories and
| the powerful package manager. Right now,
| Lenny (5.0) is the stable release, and
| Squeeze (6.0) is in testing. Sometime "soon"
| Squeeze will get frozen, which means the
| regular flow of package migration will stop,
| and from then on it will only get bug and
| security fixes through a method of back-
| porting. Once the number of "release
| critical" bugs is reduced to an acceptable
| level (which used to mean 0, more recently it
| means 50 or so), then Squeeze will be
| released as the new stable version.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
