Het besturingssysteem Debian GNU/Linux is half december voorzien van een nieuwe release van versie 4.0, die als de versieaanduiding 4.0r6 heeft meegekregen. De veranderingen zijn voornamelijk gericht op beveiligingsupdates en bugfixes in de meegeleverde packages. Zoals gewoonlijk is de update beschikbaar voor verschillende hardwareplatformen, zoals alpha, arm, i386, x86-64, ia64, mips, powerpc en sparc. De aankondiging ziet er als volgt uit:

Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 updated

The Debian project is pleased to announce the sixth update of its stable distribution Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 (codename "etch"). This update mainly adds corrections for security problems to the stable release, along with a few adjustment to serious problems.

Please note that this update does not constitute a new version of Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 but only updates some of the packages included. There is no need to throw away 4.0 CDs or DVDs but only to update via an up-to-date Debian mirror after an installation, to cause any out of date packages to be updated.

Those who frequently install updates from security.debian.org won't have to update many packages and most updates from security.debian.org are included in this update.

New CD and DVD images containing updated packages and the regular installation media accompanied with the package archive respectively will be available soon at the regular locations.

Upgrading to this revision online is usually done by pointing the aptitude (or apt) package tool (see the sources.list(5) manual page) to one of Debian's many FTP or HTTP mirrors. A comprehensive list of mirrors is available at:
http://www.debian.org/distrib/ftplist

Nieuwe Etch, leuk, scheelt weer tijd bij dist-upgrade na een verse installatie. Debian blijft toch m'n favoriete server-OS.

Maar is er enig idee wanneer Lenny (5.0) uit zal komen? Een tijdje terug gonste het van de geruchten dat het erg binnenkort zou zijn, maar de laatste paar weken blijft het stil.
People often ask if there is a single release progress meter. Unfortunately there isn't one, but we can refer you to several places that describe things needed to be dealt with for the release to happen:

Helaas. Gewoon vaak de website in de gaten houden, denk ik.
Je kunt je 'abonneren' op de debian-announce mailing list. Dan krijg je netjes een mail als er een nieuwe versie uit is. Bijna alle grote open-source projecten hebben wel zoiets :)
Het aantal "release critical" bugs geeft wel een beetje de voortgang aan. Zo zie je ook duidelijk de dalen van vorige releases.
