The Debian project has announced that they are now aiming to launch the new Debian 7.0 “Wheezy” in the first weekend of May.
After spending an eternity in development, Debian 7.0 “Wheezy” will finally become the latest stable release, and the project can finally move to another development branch.
“We now have a target date of the weekend of 4th/5th May for the release. We have checked with core teams, and this seems to be acceptable for everyone. This means we are able to begin the final preparations for a release of Debian 7.0 – Wheezy,” stated the Debian developer, Neil McGovern.
This date should be set in stone, and barring some unknown problems or bugs with the Release Candidates, we should get the distribution in the first week of May.
