Debian is released on a regular basis (however, the time between releases has increased with each new release). During development of a release, there are a set of development releases that always exist. These are stable (the current release), testing, the next release which is currently in development, and unstable, the release which is constantly updated and in active development. Only stable is recommended for production use.

Current Releases

  • [:DebianOldstable:oldstable] - The previous stable release (3.0) ([:DebianWoody:woody])

  • [:DebianStable:stable] - La version stable actuelle (3.1) ([:DebianSarge:sarge])

  • [:DebianTesting:testing] - La version "testing" prochaine stable (4.0) (prévu prochainement) ([:DebianEtch:etch])

  • [:DebianUnstable:unstable] - La version toujours en développement ([:DebianSid:sid]) (Les nouveaux paquets sont testé ici)

  • [:DebianExperimental:experimental] - Not really a release, but where new packages are introduced
