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.

RE[3]: the end of Debian ?

Member since:

It is misleading stating that
"Debian Adopts Two-Year Time-Based Release Cycle".

The article here quotes the following
"Time-based freezes will allow the Debian Project to blend the predictability of time based releases with its well established policy of feature based releases."

To break it down, they state that they blend two things
1. Time-based release cycle
2. Feature based release

What they get is not a
Time-based release cycle, but a
Time-based freeze cycle.
