    Debian Wheezy to be released soon


    I hear Debian Wheezy is being released at the beginning of next month. I wonder how this will affect AntiX. They freeze Debian Testing just before a new release so there will probably be an avalanche of new stuff coming down the line soon.

    I thought Debian had adopted a time based release cycle - from here I was expecting a freeze December this year with a release early next year ... have things changed?

    I took that to mean the freeze is determined, not necessarily the release ... cheers, drl
