>> News

A new update of the Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 release (aka 'potato') has been released. The new release, version 2.2r1, includes both security updates and fixes to important bugs in the stable distribution tree.

The Debian team is currently working on several security issues and other bug fixes are pending. A 2.2r2 release is expected within the next 10 days to address these issues. It is recommended that people wishing to install these updates or create CD images wait until the release of version 2.2r2 to do so.

Several patches to ensure better synchronization of binaries between different architectures have also been included. Some new packages (notably console-apt and Mozilla M18) have been installed in the distribution.
