Debian next version release date announced and the details as follows
We now have a target release date of Saturday the 25th of April. We have checked with core teams, and this seems to be acceptable for everyone. This means we are able to begin the final preparations for a release of Debian 8 -- "Jessie".
The intention is only to lift the date if something really critical pops up that is not possible to handle as an errata, or if we end up technically unable to release that weekend.
Please keep in mind that we intend to have a quiet period from Saturday the 18th of April. Bug fixes must be *in Jessie* before then.
RC bugs not fixed in time
Should you have any RC bug fixes that misses the deadline please contact the Stable Release Team via a "pu" bug against the release.debian.org pseudopackage, including a debdiff of the current and proposed source packages.
Please note that removals can still occur. In particular, the automatic removal from testing remains active! We currently have *at least* 12 RC bugs eligible for automatic removal before the release!
