When will Debian 12 droplets be available?

Is there a schedule for releasing a Debian 12 (Bookworm) image? It was officially released on June 10. My application requires Debian 12, and I’m supposed to install it this week.

If it’s not going to be for a while, is there any reason I wouldn’t be able to get to 12 by upgrading the Debian 11 image?

Hey @sethh,

I can confirm that Debian 12 has been released and can be selected as an image when creating a Droplet.
