Debian and its clones Oh glorious day! After two years of development, one of the prime Linux distributions has pushed out a new release - Debian 6.0 'Squeeze' has been released. The most fascinating aspect fo this new release is that it includes Debian/kFreeBSD s a technology preview, which fascinates me to no end. Of course, there's a whole lot more, including a brand new website for the project - the first major redesign in 13 years.

Alternatively, I'd be interested to know where I can track package progress (unstable to testing is easy but that won't be valid tracking for me until Weezy is into it's final six months before release.

You mean something like PTS: http://packages.qa.debian.org/ ?

Anyhow, previous to the Sunday/Monday announcement, these packages looked like they'd be included into the new Debian stable:

aircrack-ng - http://packages.qa.debian.org/a/aircrack-ng.html
bastille - http://packages.qa.debian.org/b/bastille.html
evolution-mapi - http://packages.qa.debian.org/e/evolution-mapi.html
mondo - http://packages.qa.debian.org/m/mondo.html

Cheers. Been through packages.debian.org and keep a few tabs lurking packages through bjorn.haxx.se/debian/testing.pl but this seems to be what I was missing.

Thanks, I'm off to do some reading.

Sorry, one last OT question. The packages.qa gives a nice current status of a package. Does it indicate if a package will be included into a specific version? It may and I'm just blind today.

I guess what I'm after is a list of packages not currently in Stable's repositories but that may trickle in still based on being exceptions to the usual new package hold on Stable. My example, Bastille, made sense since it relies primarily on other packages and it's own list of possible config changes to harden a system. (edit: one would want to let it's dependencies stabilize before updating it) My surprise is that it remains absent after Squeeze is deemed Stable.
