Debian 7.2 released

The Debian project is pleased to announce the second update of its
stable distribution Debian 7 (codename `wheezy'). This update mainly
adds corrections for security problems to the stable release, along
with a few adjustments for 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 7 but only updates some of the packages included. There is no
need to throw away older `wheezy' 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up-to-date Debian mirror after an installation, to cause any out of
date packages to be updated.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 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:
