The much anticipated release of Debian GNU/Linux 6.0 “Squeeze” did not arrive before the end of the year 2010, as some have speculated, so the wait is still on. But as Susan Linton writes in Is the Debian 6.0 “Squeeze” Release Upon Us?, there are several signs, some more tangible than others, that it won’t be long now: “Release critical bugs concerning the next release have been markedly decreasing in recent weeks with persons of major concern dropping to its lowest numbers this release cycle. The total number of all bugs remains relatively high at 1555 (down from over 2,600 this time last year), the real number of bugs affecting this release is down to just 84. This number reflects all bugs minus ignored bugs, bugs in packages not in testing, and bugs whose tags indicate not in testing. This number has been very low and decreasing since the beginning of the new year. But for persons who like more tangible proof, there is little from actual developers at this moment, but there are small clues. One to surface today was mentioned on the Debian forum by a ‘Sid’ user. He noticed during updates that the latest base-files package changes the codename from ‘Debian GNU Linux squeeze/sid’ to ‘Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.'”
