Debian 6.0 “Squeeze” has been released

Today is a great day for the Debian community : Debian Squeeze has been released.

After 24 months of constant development, the Debian Project is proud to present its new stable version 6.0 (code name Squeeze). Debian 6.0 is a free operating system, coming for the first time in two flavours. Alongside Debian GNU/Linux, Debian GNU/kFreeBSD is introduced with this version as a technology preview.

The website of the Debian project also got a facelift. Please visit it for more information.

As a consequence, you have to take care of the content of your /etc/apt/sources.list file :

  • Squeeze is now refered as “stable”
  • Lenny is now known as “oldstable”

Therefore, if you want to stick to Lenny, change all the occurrences of “stable” to “oldstable” or “lenny”.
