The first update of version 6.0 of Debian has been released. Debian is an open source operating system, which can be used for both desktops and servers, with an emphasis on stability and security. It is therefore used as the basis for various Linux distributions. In version 6.0, codenamed ‘Squeeze’, we also see a GNU/kFreeBSD implementation for the first time. We don’t find any major changes in this update; However, various improvements have been made to existing components.

Updated Debian 6.0: 6.0.1 released

The Debian project is pleased to announce the first update of its stable distribution Debian 6.0 (codename ôsqueezeö). This update mainly adds corrections for security problems to the stable release, along with a few adjustment to serious problems.

Please note that this update does not constitute a new version of Debian 6.0 but only updates some of the packages included. There is no need to throw away 6.0 CDs or DVDs but only to update via an up-to-date Debian mirror after an installation, to cause any out of date packages to be updated.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 won’t have to update many packages and most updates from are included in this update.

New CD and DVD images containing updated packages and the regular installation media accompanied with the package archive respectively 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 here.
