Debian 7.0 named

As the Debian developers work on completing development of the free software Debian GNU/Linux 6.0, known as “Squeeze”, they have also been selecting the name for the next version, 7.0. In a recent release update posting, it was announced that Debian GNU/Linux 7.0 will be named “Wheezy”.

Debian release names are taken from characters in the Toy Story movie series. For example, Squeeze is a reference to the little green alien toys who appear in all three movies. “Wheezy”, a squeezy penguin toy which wears a red bow tie, only appears in the second Toy Story film and is the first character selected as a Debian version name which has not appeared in all the movies.
