Debian 3.1 (Sarge) was released on June 6th; a distribution derived from
Debian, Ubuntu, has become one of the hottest Linux distributions; the
DCC Alliance brought a Linux Standards Base (LSB) 3.0 compliant core to
Debian; and Netcraft reported that Debian has regained its position as
the fastest growing Linux distribution for web servers. Together these
show that Debian has matured significantly over the past year.
