Versie 5.0 van het besturingssysteem Debian GNU/Linux is voorzien van een nieuwe release, die 5.0.8 als versieaanduiding heeft meegekregen. De veranderingen zijn voornamelijk beveiligingsupdates en bugfixes in de meegeleverde packages. Zoals gewoonlijk is de update beschikbaar voor verschillende hardwareplatforms, zoals Alpha, ARM, i386, x86-64, ia64, MIPS, PowerPC en Sparc. De aankondiging ziet er als volgt uit:
Updated Debian GNU/Linux: 5.0.8 released
The Debian project is pleased to announce the eighth update of its stable distribution Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 (codename lenny). This update mainly adds corrections for security problems to the stable release, along with a few adjustment to serious problems.
Please note that this update does not constitute a new version of Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 but only updates some of the packages included. There is no need to throw away 5.0 CDs or DVDs but only to update via an up-to-date Debian mirror after an installation, to cause any out of date packages to be updated.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 CD and DVD images containing updated packages and the regular installation media accompanied with the package archive respectively 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 http://www.debian.org/mirror/list
