There are 2 major distribution types of GNU/Linux:
  • rolling-release (continuous delivery), which main purpose is the newest software
  • standard or point release, which main purpose is the very well tested software
Debian uses standard system.
OpenJDK 21 reached General Availability on 2023-09-19.
Debian 12 (Bookworm) had hard freeze on 2023-03-12.
