The Debian project has announced that Debian 5.0.10 will be the last update to Debian 5, codenamed Lenny. The update mostly includes critical security patches and a few important bug fixes and also rolls together all security updates since the last point release. These patches have already been delivered to Debian 5 systems that have automatic updates enabled; users who have not received the update in this way should update their system manually by using the update manager.

Debian Lenny was originally released in February 2009, and has not been receiving regular security updates since February this year. The Debian developers are planning to officially move Debian 5 to the archive servers on 24 March. Users who are running Debian 5 are advised to upgrade to Debian 6 as soon as possible.
