      Debian 7.0 "Wheezy" released press@...
      May 4th, 2013 http://www.debian.org/News/2013/20130504
      ------------------------------------------------------------------------


      After many months of constant development, the Debian project is proud
      to present its new stable version 7.0 (code name "Wheezy").
      This new version of Debian includes various interesting features such as
      multiarch support [1], several specific tools to deploy private
      clouds [2], an improved installer, and a complete set of multimedia
      codecs and front-ends which remove the need for third-party
      repositories.

      Multiarch support, one of the main release goals for "Wheezy", will
      allow Debian users to install packages from multiple architectures on
      the same machine. This means that you can now, for the first time,
      install both 32- and 64-bit software on the same machine and have all
      the relevant dependencies correctly resolved, automatically.

      The installation process has been greatly improved: Debian can now be
      installed using software speech, above all by visually impaired people
      who do not use a Braille device. Thanks to the combined efforts of a
      huge number of translators, the installation system is available in 73
      languages, and more than a dozen of them are available for speech
      synthesis too.
      In addition, for the first time, Debian supports installation and
      booting using UEFI for new 64-bit PCs (amd64), although there is no
      support for "Secure Boot" yet.

      This release includes numerous updated software packages, such as:

      * Apache 2.2.22
      * Asterisk 1.8.13.1
      * GIMP 2.8.2
      * an updated version of the GNOME desktop environment 3.4
      * GNU Compiler Collection 4.7.2
      * Icedove 10 (an unbranded version of Mozilla Thunderbird)
      * Iceweasel 10 (an unbranded version of Mozilla Firefox)
      * KDE Plasma Workspaces and KDE Applications 4.8.4
      * kFreeBSD kernel 8.3 and 9.0
      * LibreOffice 3.5.4
      * Linux 3.2
      * MySQL 5.5.30
      * Nagios 3.4.1
      * OpenJDK 6b27 and 7u3
      * Perl 5.14.2
      * PHP 5.4.4
      * PostgreSQL 9.1
      * Python 2.7.3 and 3.2.3
      * Samba 3.6.6
      * Tomcat 6.0.35 and 7.0.28
      * Xen Hypervisor 4.1.4
      * the Xfce 4.8 desktop environment
      * X.Org 7.7
      * more than 36,000 other ready-to-use software packages, built from
      nearly 17,500 source packages.

      With this broad selection of packages, Debian once again stays true to
      its goal of being the universal operating system. It is suitable for
      many different use cases: from desktop systems to netbooks; from
      development servers to cluster systems; and for database, web, or
      storage servers. At the same time, additional quality assurance efforts
      like automatic installation and upgrade tests for all packages in
      Debian's archive ensure that "Wheezy" fulfills the high expectations
      that users have of a stable Debian release. It is rock solid and
      rigorously tested.

      You can install Debian on computers ranging from handheld systems to
      supercomputers, and on nearly everything in between. A total of nine
      architectures are supported: 32-bit PC / Intel IA-32 (i386), 64-bit PC /
      Intel EM64T / x86-64 (amd64), Motorola/IBM PowerPC (powerpc), Sun/Oracle
      SPARC (sparc), MIPS (mips (big-endian) and mipsel (little-endian)),
      Intel Itanium (ia64), IBM S/390 (31-bit s390 and 64-bit s390x), and ARM
      EABI (armel for older hardware and armhf for newer hardware using
      hardware floating-point).

      Want to give it a try?
      If you want to simply try it without having to install it, you can use a
      special image, known as a live image, available for CDs, USB sticks, and
      netboot setups. Initially, these images are provided for the amd64 and
      i386 architectures only. It is also possible to use these live images to
      install Debian. More information is available from the Debian Live
      homepage [3].

      If, instead, you want to directly install it, you can choose among
      various installation media, such as Blu-ray Discs, DVDs, CDs, and USB
      sticks, or from the network. Several desktop environments — GNOME, KDE
      Plasma Desktop and Applications, Xfce, and LXDE — may be installed
      through CD images; the desired one may be chosen from the boot menus of
      the CDs/DVDs. In addition, multi-architecture CDs and DVDs are available
      which support installation of multiple architectures from a single disc.
      Or you can always create bootable USB installation media (see the
      Installation Guide [4] for more details).

      The installation images may be downloaded right now via bittorrent [5]
      (the recommended method), jigdo [6], or HTTP [7]; see Debian on CDs [8]
      for further information. Wheezy will soon be available on physical DVD,
      CD-ROM, and Blu-ray Discs from numerous vendors [9], too.

      Already a happy Debian user and you only want to upgrade?
      Upgrades to Debian 7.0 from the previous release, Debian 6.0 (codenamed
      "Squeeze"), are automatically handled by the apt-get package management
      tool for most configurations. As always, Debian systems may be upgraded
      painlessly, in place, without any forced downtime, but it is strongly
      recommended to read the release notes [10] as well as the installation
      guide [11] for possible issues, and for detailed instructions on
      installing and upgrading. The release notes will be further improved and
      translated to additional languages in the weeks after the release.
