Debian Bullseye Freeze Schedule

It's coming on quickly, now. As announced last March, the transition freeze is set for early January and the soft freeze should happen in February. Bullseye stable will probably come out around July...

https://release.debian.org/bullseye/freeze_policy.html

For at least the last 2 releases, I've upgraded at the soft freeze, breakages are extremely rare at that stage (I don't remember any on my upgraded systems). Would recommend if you like to help test things.

For testing discussions, use the Development & Suggestions forum.

Re: Debian Bullseye Freeze Schedule

And do you think Beryllium will be out not long after Bullseye is released? Doing upgrades just at the time of soft freeze is a good time IMO as well. Debian Sid also stops transitions around that time to ensure no packages transition to testing branch so as not to disrupt the pending release.

That's the plan, we're trying not to be a year late again.

Sounds good and it's understandable Lithium was delayed that long due to the major infrastructure changes that needed to be made. With all that out of the way then it should be easier to get Beryllium (and beyond) out the door not long after Bullseye hits the streets. Looking forward to that release!
