this is my first time on debian when a new version of some program comes out that I want immediately. I have firefox 0.8 installed, an apt-get install mozilla-firefox tells me I have the latest version, and in my apt/sources.list it says unstable after the url.. when, roughly, can I expect new stuff like this to surface in unstable?

From Debian Weekly News:

Packaging Firefox 0.9. Eric Dorland [5]wondered how to handle the
next release candidate of Firefox. Since the release of sarge will
happen soon, he doesn't want it to be left with a potentially buggy
version. Anthony Towns [6]suggested that he uploads the new version
of Firefox to experimental as soon as possible in order to see if it
works as expected. When it doesn't cause problems, it can be moved to
unstable without much hassle.
