The Debian Project has announced the availability of Debian 10.10. As with other Debian point releases, Debian 10.10 does not constitute a major release to Debian, rather, it rolls up all the latest packages into a brand new ISO that can be used to install Debian without then having to apply post-install updates.

Anyone who is currently using Debian and has kept their system up-to-date will be on Debian 10.10 already. If you were thinking about installing Debian 10 with pre-existing installation media; you can do that and apply available updates later. Just because Debian 10.10 has been released, it doesn’t mean you have to create new installation media.

Some popular packages that have received updates in this update include the Linux Kernel, Nvidia graphics drivers, OpenVPN, Firefox ESR, OpenSSL, Chromium, and OpenJDK. One package, sogo-connector, was removed from this Debian version because it was incompatible with the current Thunderbird version bundled with Debian 10.10.

In the next few weeks or months, we should get a release date for Debian 11 Bullseye. Each new Debian release has arrived every two years since 2005 and Debian 10 was released on July 6, 2019, meaning Debian 11 is due any time now. No exact date has been provided yet but it has been announced that Debian 11 will reach its Full Freeze on July 17, something it only intends to do shortly before the actual release.
