Debian 7 has been named: Wheezy

By , the in OS - No comment
Debian version 6 is approaching (packages have been frozen since August 6th), but the Debian team have announced that the next version has already been named. Version 7's mascot is Wheezy, the penguin with a problematic whistle.

Debian has a tradition of naming its releases with characters from the Toy Story film series. Here is a quick summary:

1.1
Buzz
1.2
Rex
1.3
Bo
2.0
Hamm
2.1
Slinky
2.2
Potato
3.0
Woody
3.1
Sarge
4.0
Etch
5.0
Lenny
6.0
Squeeze
7.0
Wheezy



As always with Debian, it is stability that prevails over all else. Version 6 is now in the hardened freeze state, meaning bugfixes will only be accepted if they fix critical stability/security flaws.
