Debian Etch is now frozen prior to release

Filed under

In case you missed the annoucement yesterday Debian Etch has now been frozen for release. This means that the distribution won't receive automatic updates over the next few days and weeks. Instead only "targetted" package updates will be made.

Whilst there is still work to be done before Etch may be released as the next stable release of Debian GNU/Linux this is an important milestone.
