Debian 8 Jessie just released few days back. We apologize for being late with this news, actually we are quite busy with a lot of stuff, but here is good news: we are also providing you ready-to-use virtual machine images for Debian 8 Jessie against VirtualBox and VMware. There is no doubt that Debian is BIG project, many popular distributions like 'Ubuntu' and others are based on Debian and it's being used in commercial areas, governments, and non-commercial areas. Debian is a free operating system, developed by thousands of volunteers from all over the world who collaborate via the Internet. The Debian project's key strengths are its volunteer base, its dedication to the Debian Social Contract and Free Software, and its commitment to provide the best operating system possible. Debian 8 is another important step in that direction.
What Debian 8 has brought with itself for us: "After almost 24 months of constant development the Debian project is proud to present its new stable version 8 (code name 'Jessie'), which will be supported for the next 5 years thanks to the combined work of the Debian Security team and of the Debian Long Term Support team. 'Jessie' ships with a new default init system, systemd. The systemd suite provides many exciting features such as faster boot times, cgroups for services, and the possibility of isolating part of the services. The sysvinit init system is still available in 'Jessie'.
The UEFI ('Unified Extensible Firmware Interface') support introduced in 'Wheezy' has also been greatly improved in Jessie. This includes workarounds for many known firmware bugs, support for UEFI on 32-bit systems, and support for 64-bit kernels with 32-bit UEFI firmware (with the latter being included only on our amd64/i386 "multi-arch" installation media). " Read complete release announcement of Jessie here.
