Debian is known as the most reliable and stable operating system since decades. With the advent of Ubuntu it became rather popular. One drawback is that even the latest Generation of Debian (Codename "Wheezy") provides only a 2.1.1 release of GlassFish.
It would be great to see a more recent release of GlassFish found in the next Debian Distribution. To make this happen, it would be great if the GlassFish Installation Team would contact the GlassFish Team at the Debian Project to learn what the reason is for sticking with 2.1.1 and what steps are needed to upgrade to (at least) 184.108.40.206 with the next Debian release (v8, Codename "Jessie").
For contact information please see http://packages.debian.org/sid/glassfish-javaee.
The Debian Community would be happy to see GlassFish 3+ bundled within Debian "Jessie"!
