The wait is over. Debian 8.0—“Jessie” [was] released on April 25, after a nearly two-year development cycle for the next release of this long-standing Linux distribution.

Microsoft is even throwing Debian a birthday party, complete with cake. Sure, it’s basically just an advertisement for Microsoft’s Azure cloud-computing platform, but it’s still amusing.

As usual—with every Linux distribution, really—the biggest changes you’ll notice are package updates.
