Debian and its clones Debian GNU/Linux 4.0, codenamed Etch, had been due to arrive by December 4, 2006, but it's been delayed because some developers have 'deliberately' slowed down their work. According to a blog note by Andreas Barth, Debian developer & release manager, the delay has resulted because "Some people who used to do good work reduced their involvement drastically. There was nothing I could do about, and that happened way before I started full-time on release, but on the global picture that still counts."

Has Debian ever NOT been outdated at the time of its release?

Yes.. Obviously, you have not been around long enough to know that.

I've been in the Linux scene since 1996 and Debian has been behind the times pretty much the *whole* time.

This was going to be *the* time that they were current.

Predictably, some moral issues (which only Debian devs could possibly understand) have closed in to restore what I consider to be "normality".

I use CentOS and Fedora. ;-)
