No, there isn't. there are still several packaghes with serious bugs in them. Supposing you use woody (3.0r2) now and want something newer, I propose you try sarge.

This will however come to you without security updates, and with quite a few packages missing still.

Debian releases occur when they are ready.

In particular, Debian releases have no relationship
at all with kernel, gcc, X, KDE, gnome or any other release dates.

As to the kernel 2.6 being stable - the 2.6.x
releases up to now happened quite quickly, which tells me that 'stable' is not the word I'd use at the moment.

You can, however, easily use kernel 2.6 with Debian
- install the modules-init-tools and kernel-source-2.6.3 package from Debian testing (sarge) or unstable (sid), and go playing.
