Debian and its clones A few months later than expected, Debian 5 has finally arrived with a bundle of new goodies: Java is finally in the Debian repositories thanks to IcedTea and OpenJDK; Firefox (rebranded as Iceweasel) is now at 3.0; and official live images are ready for our downloading pleasure. TuxRadar has a detailed look at Lenny along with an explanation from Steve McIntyre, the Debian Project Leader, on why it was delayed. Earlier this week, we already detailed the new features in Lenny.

Congrats on yet another late Debian release chock full of already obsolete software! Rah! Rah! Rah!

Windows 3.x worked and fulfilled its role.

Except the point of stable is that it is tried and tested. Obsolete is just another word for it depending on your point of view. ;)

bring on a new round of testing/sid!

When I saw your avatar, I couldn't help but think that that woman had just found out the version of GLIBC included. :-0

By myself? No. Do other distros manage to do it better? Yes.
