Updated Debian 7: 7.2 released

 

The Debian project is pleased to announce the second update of its stable distribution Debian 7 (codename wheezy). This update mainly adds corrections for security problems to the stable release, along with a few adjustments for serious problems. Security advisories were already published separately and are referenced where available.

 

Please note that this update does not constitute a new version of Debian 7 but only updates some of the packages included. There is no need to throw away older wheezy CDs or DVDs but only to update via an up-to-date Debian mirror after an installation, to cause any out of date packages to be updated.

 

Those who frequently install updates from security.debian.org won't have to update many 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 available soon at the regular locations.

Upgrading to this revision online is usually done by pointing the aptitude (or apt) package tool (see the sources.list(5) manual page) to one of Debian's many FTP or HTTP mirrors. A comprehensive list of mirrors is available at:

Thanks Mephistopheles, that was fast! I've been watching the cross-talk between the various teams involved in this release for a little while now, but you managed to post the news here before I even saw the e-mail from debian-announce in my inbox. Good work!

 

In case anyone here is still supporting machines running Debian Squeeze, look out for the Debian 6.0.8 release sometime in the near future. There was some talk of doing both releases on the same weekend (i.e. this weekend), but I don't think that's going to happen. However, the next Squeeze point release should be in the very near future.
