Debian 8: 8.1 released
The Debian project is pleased to announce the first update of its stable
distribution Debian 8 (codename "jessie"). 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
8 but only updates some of the packages included. There is no need to
throw away old "jessie" 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Debian mirror after an installation, to cause any out of date packages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:
