Yes, but they have received almost no testing. They are not ripe for

Yup... The old 'lets wait for' list just keeps growing.

Sarge is frozen. It's a shame this didn't get in - But if we were to
delay Sarge for two more weeks just to get mod_perl2 in, we'd have to
delay it further to allow for KDE 3.4, GNOME 2.10, MySQL 5, and a long
list of etceteras that will push us beyond Etch.

Lets get Sarge out now. Lets get Etch out soon.
