Debian 6.0 “squeeze” is out


This Sunday, as expected, Debian GNU / Linux 6.0 “Squeeze” was officially released in stable version after 24 months of development. Two versions are available: Debian GNU / Linux and Debian GNU / kFreeBSD, introduced as a technology demonstration based on the core of the FreeBSD project. Debian 6.0 is available for nine architectures, which allows Debian to run on many computers, the personal assistant to the supercomputer.

Another novelty is the arrival of a Linux kernel 100% free, which contains no proprietary firmware. The start was made faster thanks to the introduction of a system boot sequence with dependency management.

In addition, improvements have been made to adapt better to netbooks. Among the packages that come with version 6.0: KDE 4.4.5, GNOME 2.30, Xfce 4.6, LXDE 0.5.0, X. Org 7.5, 3.2.1, Iceweasel 3.5.16, 3.0.11 Icedove, PostgreSQL 8.4 .6, 01/05/1949 MySQL, GCC 4.4.5, Python 2.6.6, 2.5.5 and 3.1.3, Perl 5.10.1, PHP 5.3.3, Xen 4.0.1, OpenJDK 6b18 and over 29,000 other packages .
