  • bullseye release planned on 2021-08-14 and the last weeks up to the release
    Hi all,
    
    Release date
    ============
    
    We plan to release on 2021-08-14.
    
    If you want to celebrate it (and the conditions around you allow for
    it), please consider attending a Debian release party, or hosting your
    own! See https://wiki.debian.org/ReleasePartyBullseye for more
    information.
    
    
    The final weeks up to the release
    =================================
    
    In the last week prior to the freeze, testing will be completely
    frozen and only emergency bug fixes will be considered in this period.
    Please consider Tuesday the 2021-08-03 at 12:00 UTC the absolute last
    moment for submitting unblock requests for bullseye.
    
    Changes that are not ready to migrate to testing at that time will
    not be included in bullseye for the initial release.  However, you can
    still fix bugs in bullseye via point releases if the changeset follows
    the rules for updates in stable.
    
    Starting now, we will be even more strict when considering unblock
    requests. Please check the details below and make sure to only upload
    well-tested *targeted* fixes.
    
    In summary:
    
                                         vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv
     * **Unblock request** deadline:   > 2021-08-03 12:00 UTC <
                                         ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
       - You must submit your unblock request *before* then
       - Your changes must be ready to migrate to bullseye at that time
       - Upload several days *before* the deadline
    
     * If a change is late, it may still be applicable for an update via
       a point release after bullseye has been released.
    
     * Please note that the automatic removals are still in effect and may
       still remove packages up to that date. Also, some packages will be
       removed manually before the auto-removal deadline.
    
    Please fix bugs today rather than shortly before the deadline. Simple
    mistakes (no manner how trivial) or busy buildd queue can end up
    causing your upload to miss the bullseye release.
    
    Future updates to bullseye up to the freeze
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    As we are entering the final part of the freeze, please keep future
    changes and unblock requests limited to:
    
     * targeted fixes for release critical bugs (i.e., bugs of severity
       critical, grave, and serious);
    
     * fixes for severity: important bugs, only when this can be done via
       unstable;
    
     * translation updates and documentation fixes, only when this can be
       done via unstable (preferably bundled with a fix for at least one
       of the problems listed above and nothing else)
    
     * updates to packages directly related to the release process
       (i.e. with references to the current layout of the archive), only
       when this can be done via unstable;
    
    We will only accept targeted fixes. Requests including other changes
    will not be accepted. Please do not upload new upstream versions to
    unstable.
    
    
    For the release team,
    Paul
    
  • Debian 11.0 "Bullseye" Gets An August Release Date - Phoronix

    The Debian release team has just announced their planned release date for Debian 11.

    Debian developers are aiming to release Debian 11.0 "Bullseye" on Saturday, 14 August.

    There is a new application available for Sparkers: Viper Browser

Debian 11 'Bullseye' Linux-based... (By Brian Fagioli)

  • Debian 11 'Bullseye' Linux-based operating system release date officially revealed

    Debian 11 'Bullseye' Linux-based operating system release date officially revealed

    Debian 11 is a long time coming now, with users of the Linux-based operating system anxiously awaiting the upcoming release for a while. Code-named "Bullseye," it has been suspected to have 2021 availability, but as of today, we now know the specific date.

    You see, the Debian developers are planning to release version 11 on August 14 of this year. In other words, it is less than a month away! This year, you can celebrate the August 14 birthdays of celebrities Mila Kunis, Steve Martin, and Magic Johnson by downloading and installing the wildly popular Linux distribution.

    "In the last week prior to the freeze, testing will be completely frozen and only emergency bug fixes will be considered in this period. Please consider Tuesday the 2021-08-03 at 12:00 UTC the absolute last moment for submitting unblock requests for bullseye," says Paul Gevers, Debian Developer.

Thinking about upgrading to Debian Bullseye?

  • Thinking about upgrading to Debian Bullseye? Watch out for changes in Exim and anything using Python 2.x

    The Debian Project has set a release date of 14 August for Debian 11, also known as Bullseye.

    Debian is an important distribution in its own right, but also influential since it is the basis for many others including Ubuntu, Mint, Devuan, Knoppix, Tails, Raspbian, Pop!_OS, SteamOS and more.

    In a post to the developer announcements mailing list, the release team said: "We plan to release on 2021-08-14." This is a little over two years since the release of Debian 10 "Buster," which came out 6 July 2019. The testing release is now "completely frozen" other than to "emergency bug fixes."

    Debian 11 is based on the 5.10 Linux kernel and officially supports the same architectures as Debian 10, though this may be the last with full 32-bit i386 support.

Debian 11 “Bullseye”: Release date has now been set

  • Debian 11 “Bullseye”: Release date has now been set

    The Debian development team has set the release date for the upcoming version 11 (“Bullseye”) of the Linux distribution Debian on August 14, 2021. “To avoid doubts: this is no longer a provisional date,” emphasized developer Paul Gevers and thanked everyone who would have made this release date possible.

    “Bullseye” remains very close to the two-year cycle between two releases that the developers are aiming for: Debian 10 (“Buster”) was released on July 6, 2019. The – expressly provisional – date for the Debian 11 release was initially July 31st.
