Debian Etch Support endet in 12 Tagen (am 15. Februar 2010)
Als Erinnerung: Wie das Debian Security Team bereits vor einiger Zeit bekannt gegeben hat, endet der Support für Debian 4.0 (Etch) am 15. Februar diesen Jahres, also in 12 Tagen. Wer noch einen Server mit Debian 4.0 betreibt sollte daher in den nächsten Tagen auf Debian 5.0 updaten.
Security Support for Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 to be discontinued on February 15th
One year after the release of Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 alias ‚lenny‘ and nearly three years after the release of Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 alias ‚etch‘ the security support for the old distribution (4.0 alias ‚etch‘) is coming to an end next month. The Debian project is proud to be able to support its old distribution for such a long time and even for one year after a new version has been released.
The Debian project has released Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 alias ‚lenny‘ on the 14th of February 2009. Users and Distributors have been given a one-year timeframe to upgrade their old installations to the current stable release. Hence, the security support for the old release of 4.0 is going to end in February 2010 as previously announced.
Previously announced security updates for the old release will continue to be available on security.debian.org.
