The codename for the next release (and thus, the moniker for the new "testing" branch) will be "Squeeze". Among other things, netbook support has been greatly improved. Included are: the Linux kernel 2.6.26, Gnome 2.22.2, KDE 3.5.10, gcc 4.3.2 and 25,000 other software packages.

New features include a port to ARM's EABI architecture, a free-as-in-speech Java implementation based on OpenJDK, and lots of updated software packages. The release is dedicated to the memory of Thiemo Seufer, who died in a tragic car accident last December."
