-It is with huge pleasure that the Debian GNU/Hurd team announces the
-**release of Debian GNU/Hurd 2013**.
-This is a snapshot of Debian sid at the time of the Debian
-"wheezy" release (May 2013), so it is mostly based on the same sources. It is *not* an
-official Debian release, but it is an official Debian GNU/Hurd port release.
-The installation ISO images can be downloaded from
-[Debian Ports](
-in the usual three Debian flavors: NETINST, CD, DVD. Besides the friendly
-Debian installer, a pre-installed disk image is also available, making it even easier to try
-Debian GNU/Hurd.
-Debian GNU/Hurd is currently available for the i386 architecture with more
-than 10.000 software packages available (more than 75% of the Debian archive, and more
-to come!).
-Please make sure to read the
-[configuration information](,
-the [[FAQ]],
-and the [[translator primer|hurd/documentation/translator_primer]]
-to get a grasp of the great features of GNU/Hurd.
-Due to the very small number of developers,
-our progress of the project has not been as fast as other successful
-operating systems, but we believe to have reached [[a very decent state|hurd/status]], even with our limited resources.
-We would like to thank all the people who have worked on GNU/Hurd [[over the past
-decades|history]]. There were not many people at any given time (and still not many people
-today, please [[join|contributing]]!), but in the end a lot of people have
-contributed one way or another. **Thanks everybody!**
-The **GNU Hurd** is the GNU project's replacement for the Unix kernel. It is a
-collection of servers that run on the Mach microkernel to implement file
-systems, network protocols, file access control, and other features that are
-implemented by the Unix kernel or similar kernels (such as Linux). [[More
-**GNU Mach** is the microkernel upon which a GNU Hurd system is based. It
-provides an Inter Process Communication (IPC) mechanism that the Hurd uses to
-define interfaces for implementing in a distributed multi-server fashion the
-services a traditional operating system kernel provides. [[More
