Debian and its clones What a lovely holiday to release the latest and greatest creation brought to us by yours truly, Debian. February 14th marks Debian GNU/Linux 5.0's supposed release into the wilds of the world, nearly two years after 'etch,' lenny's predecessor. The date is set nearly in stone unless something very serious goes wrong in the final days of development or if one of the needed servers for download kicks the bucket at the wrong moment. Read on for the scoop on the most prominent of features.

That also means that Sid (Unstable) is "free" again. I mean, even if Sid is never gonna be released, every manpower is busy working on making Lenny as stable as possible.
So Sid does not get big changes when a distro which is in testing gets frozen. Hence I suppose Sid does not differ very much from Lenny at the moment.
But very soon it will get KDE 4.2 which is in Experimental and works very well (I'm already using it), and other packages.
