yup that's really great :-) :-) but the bad part is that testing & unstable are probably going to be quite unstable for some weeks... ;-)

I haven't seen any official release announcement yet. And there are still some release-critical bugs to be fixed: http://bugs.debian.org/release-critical/ They can either delay the release in order to fix those bugs or else they need to drop some packages from the Sarge release. Well, I expect we'll learn today what they have decided.

I can't imagine that they are going to release today.

It has been a couple of years since the latest release (Woody), I don't think they're going to rush to get it out today. I think they'll need another week or two. A lot of rc-bugs appeared the last 3 days and those need to get fixed before they're able to release Sarge.

Does anyone know if Debian made the release? Just wondering because I read somewhere the way the source.list is setup was changing so you didn't have to have a non-us source. Can't wait to see what shows up in unstable and testing was the release is finally made.

It's official...Debian GNU/Linux 3.1 (Sarge) is now the stable version..............Here's the official Debian press release and the Debian "sarge" Release Information......


PS: Some of the secondary mirrors still have "woody" as the stable release, and the primary mirrors are currently being changed...........I would wait before doing an update and change the /etc/apt/sources.list from testing to stable when the dust settles a bit..........

The testing security update mirror doesn't seem to be working at present. Might be because of the changes going on.

# Security Updates Testing
deb http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main contrib non-free

I've a question. This is the first Debian release since I'm using Debian. What happens next? When will Etch become the testing distribution? There are some nice new packages in Sid and there are going to be some great improvements (Xorg, Gnome 2.10, KDE 3.4). When can we expect those packages in the new testing branch ??

McCloud, from what I understand of the release process, testing and unstable should be pretty much similar during the first weeks and then quite equally unstable. Now that sarge is out many new packages are going to flow to unstable and testing. At least you are going to have the packages that were in unstable quite soon in testing...

Nah! Someone's playing a late April Fools joke. Next they'll say that Apple's moving to Intel.

LMAO oh, wait a sec........doh!! I forgot about that. What, like around 2007 or so? Never thought I would see the day.

Yeah, I tried doign an apt-get update just now through the server in North Dakota and I got a lot of 404's and Server Closed Connection jargon. Guess that means there is some heavy rotation going on at the moment.

LOL............I was able to update okay several hours ago, but I'm sticking with the Sarge release for awhile.......I merely changed from testing to stable in the /etc/apt/sources.list file, but I forgot to change the lines for the security updates and received errors just for those servers when first trying to update..............
