Updated Debian 6.0: 6.0.3 released

The Debian project is pleased to announce the third update of its stable
distribution Debian 6.0 (codename "Squeeze"). This update mainly adds
corrections for security problems to the stable release, along with a few
adjustments to serious problems. Security advisories were already
published separately and are referenced where available.

Please note that this update does not constitute a new version of Debian
6.0 but only updates some of the packages included. There is no need to
throw away 6.0 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mirror after an installation, to cause any out of date packages to be

Those who frequently install updates from won't have
to update many packages and most updates from are
included in this update.

New installation media and CD and DVD images containing updated packages
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:

Debian Installer

The Debian Installer has been updated in this point release to
correct the following issues (among others):

* fix netinstall on IP22 / IP32 (mips)
* allow use of grub-legacy to be pre-seeded (if appropriate)

The kernel image used by the installer has been updated to incorporate a
number of important and security-related fixes together with updates to
the e1000e, igb, igbvf, r8169, tg3, and broadcom network drivers to add
support for additional hardware.

The GNU/kFreeBSD installer also incorporates an updated kernel image
including an updated if_msk Gigabit Ethernet driver.
