Debian Squeeze 6.0 released on February 6th, 2011.  When it was frozen
prior to release that was the best version available.  The next Debian
stable production release will be Wheezy 7.0 sometime soon and hasn't
released yet.  Debian has been releasing a stable production release
about every two years and then supporting it with security upgrades
for about another eighteen months.  We are approaching the end of the
two year lifecycle of the production stable release and therefore
everything in it is at least two years old.  For people who want
production stable systems it is a good release time cycle.
