The Debian project is delighted to announce the fourth update of its stable distribution Debian 6.0 (codename “squeeze”).
This update chiefly adds corrections for security issues to the stable release, along with a few adjustments to serious issues. Security advisories were already published separately and are referenced where obtainable.
Note that this update does not constitute a new version of Debian 6.0 but only updates a number of the packages included. There is no require to throw away 6.0 CDs or DVDs but only to update by an up-to-date Debian mirror after an installation, to cause any obsolete packages to be updated.
Those who often install updates from security.debian.org won’t must update plenty of packages and most updates from security.debian.org are included in this update.
New installation media and CD and DVD images containing updated packages will be obtainable soon at the regular locations.
Upgrading to this revision online is usually done by pointing the aptitude (or apt) package device (see the sources.list(five) manual page) to of Debian’s plenty of FTP or HTTP mirrors. A comprehensive list of mirrors is obtainable at:
