Hi, I would like to know the ETA for Debian 7.0 images (64-bit mostly). Thanks!

We're finishing a large release this week - the new Control Panel - and there is one other item that we ran into specifically dealing with global images when we opened up San Francisco which we are resolving.

The new way that we will be handling inter region image transfers to give customers the ability to move their images where-ever they like, this is also something that we need internally to manage global images and make it easier to sync them between the current three regions, and going forward any other regions that we add.

There is a bit of heavy lifting on the backend in regards to this change, in addition we are modifying how images are processed for the new kernel update feature which requires us to recast all of the images into the new kernel management utility as well which is why there is a bit of a delay for adding new distros.

We hope to have made the majority of the necessary progress on these items by the end of next week so that we can get Ubuntu and Debian added and hopefully at the latest it will be early the following week.
+1 on getting debian 7 images!
raiyu, Thank you very mach for the detailed answer! DO customers are happy, I wish you luck!
I've upgraded my droplets to 7.0 via sources.list, packets got installed fine but still can't boot on 3.2.0-4-amd64
I change /boot/grub/menu.lst but the old kernel keeps booting, I guess this is because of the xen supervisor?
@pallotron: We use KVM. Upgrade your system and choose the appropriate kernel from the kernel dropdown menu in the Settings tab.
Does that mean a Debian 7 (or 7.1) image is ready to go?
@davep: Yes, we have added a Debian 7 image a while ago.
