The Debian 13 Codename Revealed – It’s Trixie

The Debian Project has announced that the codename name of Debian 13 is Trixie.

The Debian codenames are derived from characters in the Toy Story movies, as usual. In addition, Trixie (voiced by Kristen Schaal) is a blue plastic toy dinosaur first featured in Toy Story 3. Ever since 1996, the Debian Project has opted for Toy Story codenames and has so far used:

  • Buzz (1.1)
  • Rex (1.2)
  • Bo (1.3)
  • Hamm (2.0)
  • Slink (2.1)
  • Potato (2.2)
  • Woody (3.0)
  • Sarge (3.1)
  • Etch (4.0)
  • Lenny (5.0)
  • Squeeze (6.0)
  • Wheezy (7)
  • Jessie (8)
  • Stretch (9)
  • Buster (10)
  • Bullseye (11)
  • Bookworm (12)

The current version, Debian 10 “Buster,” was released in July 2019 and will receive security support until 2022 and long-term support until 2024.

The release team has decided that the release after bullseye and bookworm will be called “Trixie”.

Developers are two months out from the transition and essentials freeze for Debian 11 “Bullseye,” which should debut as stable later in 2021 and receive long-term support until 2026. Debian 12, “Bookworm,” will arrive in 2023 and get long-term support until 2028.

Debian 13 “Trixie” will arrive in 2025 and receive long-term support until 2030.
