Debian “Wheezy” 7.0

A new stable release of Debian version 7.0, codename Wheezy, is out!
After more than two years of constant development we have a brand new free and universal operating system!
Probably the main features of this release are the one stated in the very first lines of the release announcement: “This new version of Debian includes various interesting features such as multiarch support, several specific tools to deploy private clouds, an improved installer, and a complete set of multimedia codecs and front-ends which remove the need for third-party repositories“.
The previous stable release, version 6.0, will still be available and maintained until May 2014, so you have one year of time for upgrading your server, desktop or any other kind of installation you’ve made.
The next stable release will probably take another two years of development and will be called Jessie.
