Debian Switches Back To Using GLIBC
A half-decade ago the Debian project switched from GLIBC to EGLIBC as their standard C library. Debian is now reverting course and switching back to GLIBC.
The Embedded GLIBC (GLIBC) is now a "dead project" with the GLIBC upstream project being rejuvenated with no more GLIBC steering committee and other project changes. In this time most EGLIBC features have been merged into GLIBC and overall the GNU C Library has a bright future going forward. You can read more about GLIBC in last year's state and future of GLIBC address and the feature-rich GLIBC 2.19 from a few months ago.
With the issues resolved that led Debian to abandoning GLIBC a half-decade ago, they're now back to using GLIBC, per this blog post by Aurelien Jarmo.
