Announcement here:

tl;dr: Debian 6 to be supported until Feb 2016 (which is 5 years from the initial release) instead of support being dropped when Debian 8 comes out. Security support will be done by a group of volunteers and companies (not the Debian Security Team). Debian 7 and 8 will likely also be LTS releases if this process works well for Debian 6.
