Written by Michael Larabel in Debian on 31 March 2015 at 03:22 PM EDT. 20 Comments
There's a concentrated plan now to try to release Debian 8.0 "Jessie" by the end of April.

The plan is to release Debian 8.0 Jessie on 25 April. The only reason this date should be missed is "if something really critical pops up" but otherwise we're a month out from its official debut.

The 28 April release details were posted today to the Debian-devel announcement list.
