Debian 4.0 (Etch) tipped for February release
The long-awaited next version of the Debian open-source operating system is most likely to be released in February, according to members of the Debian community.
In a Debian Administration web poll, nearly half of those predicting a release date for the Linux distribution said it would happen during February. Twenty-eight percent of its community said the next release, which is the fourth version and code-named Etch, would occur in March, while 15 percent said it would be April or later. The remaining 14 percent believe release will take place in January, although some may have changed their minds since the poll was launched on 5 January.
