I am very pleased with Buster :)
GNOME defaults to Wayland now, and if anyone is wondering why, it's because no major critical bugs were filed ever since the default display server changed. No, "Wayland doesn't have X feature that X has" is not considered a major critical bug. GNOME on X is still available and is easily picked in GDM. They can still change it in a point-release, though.

Debian 10 is an amazing release.

Not to discount Buster 10's release!
Inversely this would indicate Bullseye is now testing. I had been running Buster while it was testing, I've updated my sources.list buster > bullseye and I get "All packages are up to date." so where's bullseyes?

I think it takes a few days, right now they (Debian developers, and the social crowd) are caught up in the very recent release, parties,etc,...https://wiki.debian.org/ReleaseParty .
I did notice , when I ran 'apt dist-upgrade' last night, it gave me lot's of warnings , that I was upgrading , and it is no longer Buster, but "testing", and will be "Bullseye", in other words it (apt) makes every effort to help me be sure, if I do not want "testing", need to change the sources to Buster, etc,... I am sure in a few days when all the publicity events, social events, partying,etc is done, it will start have some changes,and actual testing the next release will start. Currently though, yes "all packages are up to date"
==== edit ===
Being that today is Sunday, and not much will be going on , Monday is for getting over the hangovers, maybe Tuesday, or later in the week.

Sorry to run buster off topic - thanks! So I am not alone. Feared I had forgotten some apt configuration I had forgotten or whatever.
back on topic...
and yes Debian Buster stable is something to celebrate! I do have a system I need to know will always be functional running Debian stable!

It's there:

http://ftp.debian.org/debian/dists/bullseye/

Your mirror must be slow, try https://deb.debian.org instead.

I use deb.debian.org and tried ftp.debian.org - yes the files are there! But when I change my sources to use bullseye and apt.conf, it says all files are up to date... after apt update, apt upgrade outputs "0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded."

At the minimal least /etc/debian_version and /etc/issue.net should be updated! Shouldn't there be other files to indicate bullseye? even if packages versions aren't changed?

^ Give them a bit, I'm sure the flood of updates will be unleashed soon.

Good luck! :twisted:

Exactly my point, it takes some time, some mirrors may be faster then others, and also there won't be any new updates until someone makes some changes to some package or it's dependencies, and submits them to the "testing" repos, ...

If I were to use testing, I'd wait a bit on Buster for the situation to calm down. But that train already passed for you :D
