Now that Lenny is out, testing is moving again !
So I could upgrade my wordpress debian package to the testing version and get the 2.7.1 !
Note that my system is still running lenny (stable), this is using basic apt pinning, the more basic you can do is :
in /etc/apt/apt.conf (or in one file in /etc/apt/apt.conf.d)
- then add the tesing distrib in your source.list !
sudo aptitude update
and that’s it you can install some specific packages from testing.
However to use stable, testing and unstable you have to really do the pinning !
But for testing, unstable and experimental the above method with testing as default release will works. Just because experimental has NEVER automatic upgrade.
