It was cancelled, though they seem to be trying to keep the gap between
releases a bit shorter. But the fact that Debian stable is well debugged and
only released when it is ready, is one of the reasons that I, and, I imagine,
others, use it.
I am just sorry that they have changed it at all. Ubuntu now has 5 year
support for its long term supported version. Such a pity that Debian is
going the other way. :-(
