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.

Today was the day, and it's still not out. Guess it will still be delayed and I should just install KDE4.2 from experimental.

Debian 5.0 "Lenny" will not include KDE 4.2, although it might be available later from the backports repository.

Debian 5.0 should be uploaded to the archive mirrors around 23:00 UTC in 14.2.2009.

Wonderful. Lenny can keep the memory of "Crap KDE" alive for years to come. Happy Valentine's Day.
