Debian 4.0-updated (“etch and a half”)

“The Debian project is pleased to announce the fourth update of its stable distribution Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 (codename etch). In addition to correcting several security problems and a few serious defects in the stable release, for the first time in Debian’s history an update for a stable distrubtion also adds support for newer hardware by giving users the option to install newer drivers.”

Read the full announcement for full information, links to release notes and upgrade instructions and so on. All of our debian servers are already running this. It’s worth upgrading.

(My contribution was just suggesting a few minor changes to the draft announcement, as far as I know. Hopefully it’s an easy enough read!)
