Debian 7.1 coughs up first Wheezy fixes
The Debian project has released Debian 7.1, an update to May's release of the latest stable branch of the Linux distribution, Debian 7 "Wheezy". The update focuses mainly on security fixes, with coverage for 33 Debian Security Advisories and their associated corrections; users who regularly update from security.debian.org will already have received these fixes. There are also various "important corrections" for around 60 packages such as alsa-base, apt, cyrus-imapd, empathy, isc-dhcp, Keystone, LibreOffice, libvirt, openvpn, php5, readline, tzdata and xorg.
Full details of what packages have been changed are included in the Debian 7.1 change log. As usual, the Debian developers remind users they do not need to throw away any CDs or DVDs as updating through an up-to-date mirror after installation will bring a Debian install in line with Debian 7.1. Images for new installation media are becoming available; 7.1 is already downloadable in network installable small images and with torrents for full DVD and CD images.
