I have reviewed the bug-list and the only ones relevant to what I used to do in schools are a string of serious and not-so-serious security bugs in Moodle, some permissions issues in KVM and a few quirks in the new version of the installer. I have been using Debian Wheezy for more than a year regularly and it has been very solid. This will be a great release with an abundance of great software. ~50 bugs out of 37K packages is wonderful. Thanks to all the developers of FLOSS and the Debian developers who put this fine distro together.
