When is the projected official release?

Hi - just wondering if anyone had an idea as to the projected release of "Statler"?  It depends on squeeze, right?  I'm on 9.04 right now and pretty happy.  Maybe I should just go for the Alpha 2 release but I like stability and really love my 9.04.

Thanks again for any insight.

Cheers!

Sorry, missed the thread a few lines down.  Ignore this post and gladly welcome a moderator deleting it.  I could not figure out how to do it.

Re: When is the projected official release?

Statler alpha 2 is actually far more stable than 9.04 ever was, at least in terms of reliability; with Squeeze transitioning to stable within the next few weeks, expect either a beta or final version of Statler shortly after that.

A while ago, the forum settings allowed a thread's OP to delete his own threads, and everyone could delete his own individual posts within a thread.  One time (at band camp big_smile ) a thread OP became disgruntled and deleted a large thread with a lot of useful information, so now only us Moderators have delete power...and we really don't like having to use it unless we're purging spam or removing some patently inflammatory remark.

Re: When is the projected official release?

There should be an option to allow OP deletion if there are no replies to the thread.
This would allow the OP to delete in the event of noticing his mistake but would also hinder him from deleting a full thread.

Re: When is the projected official release?

Isn't it a bit silly to wait for the official release of a distro that says "may make your machine go CRUNCH and BANG!"? Take the risk now.

Wine - bah. Tastes like fermented grape juice. Beer, though... smile

Mmmmmmm...superfruit champagne!

I'm always a little hesitant about going off-topic in these threads, because us geeks have a tendency to run off on tangents.

Getting back on-topic, I plan to do another clean install when Philip "drops" the next point release of Statler, so I can see if there are any major changes from Statler a2.

Re: When is the projected official release?

^  So far, the 'frozen' Debian Squeeze is still using the 2.6.32-25 Kernel. 

Looks like 2.6.32 will be Kernel in the 'stable' release of Debian 6.0 Squeeze.

Fortunately, upgrading the Kernel in Debian is just a 'click' away.  lol

Re: When is the projected official release?

I really like the 32 kernel, seems to have everything needed across the board.  what's 32 -through--> current have to offer to those just using a pretty much intel based laptop??
