Debian and its clones That rare event where tried and true Debian releases a new version. "This new version of Debian includes various interesting features such as multiarch support, several specific tools to deploy private clouds, an improved installer, and a complete set of multimedia codecs and front-ends which remove the need for third-party repositories. Multiarch support, one of the main release goals for 'Wheezy', will allow Debian users to install packages from multiple architectures on the same machine. This means that you can now, for the first time, install both 32- and 64-bit software on the same machine and have all the relevant dependencies correctly resolved, automatically."

Also, what's what's to be gained with Linux. 3.2 when there have been so many improvements in 3.4 - 3.8?

People were saying similar things when Debian 6.0 got released as well. If memory serves, I think they released 6.0 with 2.6.32, and some folk were disappointed because there was some SSD-specific feature in 2.6.33 or .34 (I think it was TRIM support).

Most people should really run Testing (and backports) if they want anything even close to recent with Debian. The Stable releases are really for the moss-grown servers that have been up since the first Woodstock.

Anyways, congrats to the Debian team.
My condolences to Sid users who'll soon suffer massive trauma once the frozen repos thaw out and bucketloads of borkage head their way.
