Debian 8.8 released

The Debian Project has launched the eighth update of its stable distribution Debian 8, codename Jessie.

The update adds corrections for security problems to the stable release, along with a few adjustments.

Security advisories were already published separately and are referenced.

“Please note that this update does not constitute a new version of Debian 8, but only updates some of the packages included,” said the Debian Project.

“There is no need to throw away old Jessie DVDs, but only to update via an up-to-date Debian mirror after an installation to cause any out-of-date packages to be updated.”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 install updates from won’t have to update many packages.

New installation images containing updated packages will be available soon at the regular locations, it said.
