Jessie Repositories.

Hello friends .I wonder if it is possible to update the CrunchBang 11 , using the Debian repositories Jessie , or is it better to wait until it is stable ?
Thanks.

Re: Jessie Repositories.

Well, jessie became Stable last weekend.

You may have issues changing #! 11 (based on wheezy) to track jessie -- search the forums for more details.

Do you _need_ the newer packages found in jessie?

Debian wheezy (and hence #! 11) will be supported with security updates until 2018.

@renatonog:  If you do not want to wait for BunsenLabs Hydrogen to come out, it might be better to try the Wally spin that johnraff put together.  It uses the Jessie repos by default and looks and operates very similar to CrunchBang.

Re: Jessie Repositories.

I enjoy being able to use my older laptop. I don't particularly enjoy the process of installing new OS. To me the OS is a tool. I don't go out and buy a new screwdriver every time some new whizbang screwdriver is invented because my plain old boring one does the job just fine on those occasions I need to deal with a screw. Likewise, as long as Chrome, LibreOffice, and a few other pieces of software work on my current OS, I have no real incentive or desire to change it.
