    Any news of the release date for the stable version of Debian Etch?
    On Debian.org they are still talking about dec 2006.

    The latest news I heard was at the end of december. They said that there where some bugs to be fixed before the release, but there was no new release estimate.

    I hope they get the bugs fixed soon :)

    I don't expect to see it in January, rather February or March.

    Guys i've used Debian ETCH 4.0 and things goin' fine till now :D hope it continues like that.. but I'm really confused about one thing! the APT mirrors...

    guys please can you orient me with a good apt mirros for etch to get the latest packages...

    for example: I got two mirrors from another forum and i've tried them, so I found some packages like squid,bind etc.. others like webmin couldn't find! so I need a good repository for Debian's packages to get whatever I want!

    guys your help is highly appreciated!

    P.S: do you think guys Debian ETCH is not for production use yet! I had to use it because the SARGE3.1 couldn't support some new SATA II drives.. any idea?

    Best Regards,

    I always use ftp.de.debian.org or ftp2.de.debian.org.

    I had no problems so far, but I'd wait until the final version is released.
