One question about Squeeze


First of all , Hello to everyone!
I installed yesterday debian squeeze beta 1 with KDE.
I have to say it's awesome!
Everything is working.
I don't have any problems just a question.
When squeeze goes to stable version , will i be moved also?
If yes , how do i get moved to the next testing version (7.0)?
Thanks for your answers!!!

You will remain in stable status if your sources mention "squeeze" or "stable".

To change that to testing
- either change "squeeze" to "testing" now or after squeeze becomes stable
- or change "squeeze" to "wheezy" after squeeze becomes stable.

What ever version of 'Testing' you have - no mater what name it might be - if you change you source list repos to that name, it will stay that version. In this case, Squeeze. Change the name to that. When Debian decides to release it as 'Stable' is will stay Squeeze - The new 'Stable'. If on the other hand you leave your repo list as 'Testing' when Debian announces Squeeze as being the new 'Stable', you will in fact have the new 'Testing'.

You will always have the 'new' Testing if you do not change to the code name. It's my opinion that it's better if you do that. One can always change the name to the new 'Testing' name later.

If not, you will end up with a rolling release. And that is not what I would recommend. Stead my friend, steady. One step at a time. Always wait several months before jumping or upgrading to the new 'Testing'. Maybe 8 or so months. And use the new code name. Easy does it. Easy. Let someone else work out the bugs. Then you can upgrade.

Just out of curiosity, I've never heard of debian squeeze beta 1. Where did you find that? Is it on the Debian website?
ciao,

Thanks. I see that there are two separate names for the same iso. The one I'm familiar with is here. And the "Beta 1" is here. Very strange indeed. I'm not interested in installing testing because I already have testing. I am just curious about why there are two names for what appears to be the same iso.
???
