Debian 10.7 launches with all the latest patches
The Debian project has announced the availability of Debian 10.7. This point release comes with patches for security issues as well as a few adjustments for “serious problems”. As with all Debian point releases, if you already have an up-to-date Debian install then you’re already on Debian 10.7.
In addition to not having to reinstall Debian, there’s no need to get rid of any Debian 10 installation media you have either as these can be used to install the operating system and then you just need to apply the latest updates. The new Debian 10.7 ISOs are useful, however, if you want the latest software on an offline machine.
Some of the packages that have been updated in Debian 10.7 include the Linux kernel, OpenJDK, Ruby, SQLite, systemd, Tor, Thunderbird, Firefox ESR, MariaDB, WordPress and Transmission.
Debian 10 was released in July 2019 and is set to continue receiving updates until 2022. It will then be handed off the Long-Term Support team who will continue to provide updates for it until 2024. The next version, Debian 11, still doesn’t have an exact release date but it should launch sometime during 2021. It was revealed last month that Debian 11 would be using a slick new theme called Homeworld that was designed by Juliette Taka who was inspired by the German Bauhaus art movement.
