Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 'Slink' Frozen

November 4th, 1998

Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 'Slink' is now in a frozen state. The delay was due to the need to stabilize some key packages in the distribution. The release of Slink is scheduled for December 1998.

Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 'Potato' will be the next version of the Debian distribution. The name is taken from the character 'Mr. Potato Head' in the animated movie 'Toy Story.'
