Squeeze Countdown

The banner was made by mvd based on Valessio’s theme Spacefun.You are welcome to link it from your website.

While you are waiting, you can also update your Lenny systems to 5.0.8.

The Debian Installer team has announced the Debian Installer 6.0 Release Candidate 1 release. Read about all the changes and improvements at their announcement.

Remember Squeeze will ship with a completely free Linux Kernel, although if you require use of the non-free bits you can keep fetching them from non-free. Non-free is not part of the Debian default installation and must be enabled manually.

Your help is welcome:

  • With any of the bugs at, especially with the bugs marked as blocked.
  • With the release notes, report a bug to release-notes (with patch!) if you see any information missing or incomplete or if you have something worthwhile to add.
  • Translating the release notes with the Debian internationalization teams.
  • And you are still on time to do upgrade and installation tests and report any big issue you may encounter.
