Being big fans of debian, we are impatiently awaiting the new stable release of the distribution : lenny. Finding it pretty difficult to find information about when they were expecting to release it, I asked a colleague if he knew. He's a debian developer so I though he might have the info. And he did : according to the debian.devel mailing list we should be having the release for the 14th of February 2009. In other words : in 5 days!
There's a few geeky emails on the release date if you have time to read the threads.
