Debian 11 already has a release date: August 14

Debian 11 Aug 14

Good. We already have a date to mark on the calendar. Although Ubuntu is more popular, the system developed by Canonical is a descendant of the one developed by Project Debian. Unlike the first that we know that releases a new version every six months and we know the day half a year in advance, the second confirm the date when they have everything ready. After the «Hard Freeze» and "Full Freeze", the project announced which Debian 11 It will arrive in the middle of August.

Bullseye is the codename they have chosen for this release, and it will arrive 25 months after the current Buster. Project Debian chooses names of characters from Toy Story, and Bullseye is the rag horse that appears in the famous saga. In the wallpaper, which you can see without blurring in the link above these lines, we can see what the head of a horse looks like, although you have to have some imagination to see it.

Three weeks to Debian 11 Bullseye release

Following a bit with the comparisons with Ubuntu, Canonical releases on Thursday, and Project Debian has delivered the latest versions over the weekend. Debian 11 Bullseye will be released on 14 August, which is within 22 days.

As for the news, it is well known that Debian is not betting on the latest software, but for the one that is most tested and with the most polished bugs. As a KDE user, and if I am not mistaken, I would venture to say that you will be using Plasma 5.18, the latest LTS version of the KDE Communtity graphical environment. As for the "cinnamon" version, its main maintainer has already announced that it would not continue working to add Cinnamon 5, but it seems that Bullseye will be available with that flavor. To confirm all the functions we will have to wait until Saturday, August 14.

    Hello good day!! Congratulations to anyone who wants to install the latest stable version of debian, the mother of all GNU / Linux distributions, I have been waiting for this great news for a long time, use ubuntu for a long time until it is only for 64 bits, go to linux Mint because yes it was for 32 bits, but over time the same thing will happen to me as with ubuntu, and since debian is for 32 bits, I hope to have a system for a very long time, which I think is going to be that way, thanks, greetings and enjoy.

      Good morning Dafcab, I have read enough about GNU / Linux, what I have published is real, I take the example of Deb_Guardian.

    There is not a day that I regret having followed the Debian path and not being tempted by Ubuntu, even despite working using CentOs and RHEL, I remain loyal to Debian on my personal computers and always well tuned and they have never failed me . Hail Debian !!

    Encourage you to use Debian. After tinkering with many distributions and having Kde Neon as the main system, this year I installed Debian testing gnome and I am delighted with life. It has become my main system. Everything perfect and excellent performance in a team with many years. Greetings.

    Hi, I use Windows to work (by obligation) but I have Debian 10 on my personal PC and I am delighted! What I don't think I know if I will do is update to 11 more than anything because of everything I have to do.

    Great news the publication of D11

    This is August 14th and there is no Debian Bullseye download page listed as a stable release. The last one to appear is the Debian Bullseye RC3.
    Do you know if it will finally appear today?

      Hi Diego.

      Yes. They said so, and Debian only puts a date when it is sure everything is correct.

      Regarding downloads, I have never downloaded Debian ahead of time, but they will probably make them visible right after posting a release note.

      I am waiting for it and will publish (we) something as soon as it is official.

      A greeting.
