Debian and its clones Most mainstream distributions, like Ubuntu, Fedora, and Mandriva, have already adopted a time-based release schedule, meaning that releases are not done on a feature basis, but according to a pre-determined time schedule. The Debian project has announced that it has adopted a time-based release schedule too.

It's a two year release cycle; they've left themselves plenty of room to get each release right. They've given themselves four times the time it takes for a Fedora or Ubuntu release, to make (what will probably be) fewer, less-radical changes.
