The Debian project has published a summary of developer news. One of the items is likely to also affect users who run Debian's Testing or Unstable branches. People running one of these development branches may find their Anacron service is no longer enabled, which can cause cron jobs to no longer run when expected: "If you run Debian testing/unstable and ever installed anacron 2.3-33 on a systemd based system, then anacron will no longer be enabled and the daily/weekly/monthly cron jobs will not be run until it is. Since not all cron jobs have migrated to systemd timers, Debian Testing/Unstable systems with systemd and anacron may be missing some essential cron jobs, such as making backups of aptitude state." - https://distrowatch.com/dwres.php?resource=showheadline&story=15171
