The next release of Debian GNU/Linux is shaping up beautifully. There are only a few hundred bugs to go and many are pretty easy to fix. Everything’s easy when you do it right. At the rate they are going, Wheezy could be released before “8”. I think Wheezy could be released by September, 2012 and “8” may take until November, 2012.
I have been using some packages from Wheezy for months and I have converted two systems to Wheezy with great success so far. It looks like another great release from Debian.
