Debian 7.0 "Wheezy" To Release In Early May
Neil McGovern provided a (hopefully) final release update about "Wheezy", the next major release of Debian Linux. The target date has been set to push out Debian 7.0 to the world on the weekend of 4th/5th of May. This release will only be delayed if something bad happens to a critical application or if part of their infrastructure suffers a major problem.
At the moment there are two blocker bugs left for Wheezy, four bugs planned for removal, and 58 bugs ignored for Wheezy.
This final release information was shared today on the debian-devel-announce list.
