La prossima release stabile si chiamerà Debian “Squeeze” ed avrà come obiettivo il raggiungimento delle seguenti cose:

* Multi-arch support, which will for instance improve the installation of 32 bit packages on 64 bit machines
* kFreeBSD support, introducing the first non-linux architecture into Debian
* Improved boot performance using dash as the new default shell, and a dependency-based boot system that will both clean up the boot process and help performance through parallel processing
* A further enhanced Quality Assurance process resulting in higher quality packages. This includes:
o Clean installation, upgrade and removal of all packages
o Automatic rejection of packages failing basic quality checks
o Double compilation support
* Preparation for new package formats to help streamline future development and to introduce improved compression algorithms
* Removal of obsolete libraries for improved security
* Full ipv6 support
* Large File Support
* Automatic creation of debug packages for the entire archive, a Google Summer of Code Project pending integration into the infrastructure
* Move of packages’ long descriptions into a separate “translated package list”, which will facilitate their translation and also provide a smaller footprint for embedded systems thanks to smaller Packages files.
* Better integration of debtags, a system to tag packages with multiple attributes for easier package selection
* Discard and rebuild of binary packages uploaded by maintainers, leaving only packages build in a controlled environment
