+The last official release of the Hurd was 0.2. An
+eminent release is not planned. There are a number of
+reasons for this.
+
+One is that the Hurd is not sufficently stable or feature
+complete. If an official release of the Hurd were made
+now, people would try the Hurd and be disappointed. People
+already expect delays; to disappoint them in this way as
+well would be unfortunate. Moreover, it lessens the
+possibility that they will try the Hurd again in the future.
+
+Another reason is that, Debian provides a distribution that
+closely tracks Hurd development (and often includes many
+new features). Little is to be gained by making an official
+release.
