Debian Sarge released!

(From "Do It Yourself" columnist Scott Granneman's blog...) Yes, hell has frozen over and if you’re planning to place any crazy bets, today might be the day to make them! Debian has finally released Sarge! Holy mackerel, there’s finally a new Debian stable! Amazing! Incredible! Let’s hope that the new Debian management keeps up the pace and releases Debian on a more reasonable, modern rate. Please! Software includes kernel 2.4.27 (yes, it’s old, but this is stable, & it’s childsplay to upgrade to 2.6), KDE 3.3 (upgrade to 3.4 using experimental, if you feel like it - I use it, & it’s fine), GNOME 2.8 (same thing for GNOME 2.10), Firefox 1.0.4, Tbird 1.0.2, Apache 2.0.54 (1.3.33 is still available, for those running that version - I do!), PostgreSQL 7.4.7, XFree86 4.3 (but a switch to X.org is imminent), GCC 3.3.5, OpenOffice.org 1.1.3, and much, much, much more. For more info, see the main Debian site. If you use Debian, adjust your sources.list file & get to APTing!
