Past weekend we installed several Debian patches and were surprised that /etc/debian_version changed to 7.5. Usually there are announcements on the Debian website and mailing lists about that...

7.5

By digging a little through the recent mailing list mails, I came across this topic with the following content:

Upcoming stable point release (7.5)
The next point release for "wheezy" (7.5) is scheduled for Saturday, April 26th. 
Stable NEW will be frozen during the preceding weekend.

See https://lists.debian.org/debian-project/2014/03/msg00158.html for the archived mail.

Seems that 7.5 was (accidentally?) released already a week before the scheduled date.
