The Debian project is pleased to announce the eleventh (and final)
update of its oldstable distribution Debian 8 (codename "jessie"). This
point release mainly adds corrections for security issues, along with a
few adjustments for serious problems. Security advisories have already
been published separately and are referenced where available.
After this point release, Debian's Security and Release Teams will no
longer be producing updates for Debian 8. Users wishing to continue to
receive security support should upgrade to Debian 9, or see https://wiki.debian.org/LTS for details about the subset of
architectures and packages covered by the Long Term Support project.
The packages for some architectures for DSA 3746, DSA 3944, DSA 3968,
DSA 4010, DSA 4014, DSA 4061, DSA 4075, DSA 4102, DSA 4155, DSA 4209 and
DSA 4218 are not included in this point release for technical reasons.
All other security updates released during the lifetime of "jessie" that
have not previously been part of a point release are included in this
Please note that the point release does not constitute a new version of
Debian 8 but only updates some of the packages included. There is no
need to throw away old "jessie" media. After installation, packages can
be upgraded to the current versions using an up-to-date Debian mirror.
Those who frequently install updates from security.debian.org won't have
to update many packages, and most such updates are included in the point release.
New installation images will be available soon at the regular locations.
Upgrading an existing installation to this revision can be achieved by
pointing the package management system at one of Debian's many HTTP
mirrors. A comprehensive list of mirrors is available at:
