Want to put the some recently updated programs onto LMDE (AMpache, Clementine, Amarok, but Debian Wheezy has been frozen since July 2012. However, Xenopeek wrote today,
"Debian 7 is to be released on 4th/5th of May. Afterwards you can expect testing repository to get newer versions of programs, as till now only fixes for release bugs of Debian 7 could go into testing repository. However, LMDE has its own repository--so until a new update pack is released you still won't get newer version of your software. Perhaps one of the LMDE gurus here can give some more suggestions as to how you can get the newer versions.
After that Debian 7 is available and installed, how soon will these programs be available via the LMDE package manager or via the specific software website?
