Debian

Debian is under continual development. The latest release is Debian 8.2. It is also (currently) known as stable or by its codename “Jessie”. When a new stable version is released, the security team will usually cover the previous version for a year or so, while they also cover the new/current version. Only stable is recommended for production use.
