Default Does "apt-get dist-upgrade" upgrade the kernel?

Hello,

I'm running wheezy and it's since weeks that I started wondering when a
new kernel will come to testing :-)

root@debian:~# cat /etc/issue
Debian GNU/Linux wheezy/sid
l

test@debian:~$ uname -r
2.6.32-5-686

Now (by purely chance) I realized that there is indeed a new kernel
available in the repositories so that this means it was me making some
kind of mistake.

root@debian:~# apt-cache search linux-image

I use to upgrade the machine with this command:

apt-get update && apt-get -V dist-upgrade

Should I have been using another one that automatically triggered the new
kernel? Or is that kernel needs to be manually pulled? :-?

Greetings,

FWIW, I only ever use either the "Update Manager" or aptitude
safe-upgrade and it pulls in the kernel and headers as well as far as I
can ascertain.
