Updated Debian 10: 10.5 released

Filed under
Debian

The Debian project is pleased to announce the fifth update of its stable distribution Debian 10 (codename "buster"). 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.

This point release also addresses Debian Security Advisory: DSA-4735-1 grub2 -- security update which covers multiple CVE issues regarding the GRUB2 UEFI SecureBoot 'BootHole' vulnerability.

Please note that the point release does not constitute a new version of Debian 10 but only updates some of the packages included. There is no need to throw away old "buster" 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.

  • Andrew Cater: Debian 10.5 media testing - 202008012055 - post 4 of several

    We've more or less finished testing on the Debian install images. Now moving on to the debian-live images. Bugs found and being triaged live as I type. Lots of typing and noises in the background of the video conference. Now at about 12-14 hours in on this for some of the participants. Lots of good work still going on, as ever.

  • POSIX Compliance Explained: Does It Even Matter In 2020

    Like with the Unix Philosphy, POSIX compliance tends to get simplified far more than it really needs to which sort of makes it seem less important than it really is, so today I thought it would be a good idea to take the time to explain what it is and where it came from and why it was important in the early days of Unix and even now in the days of Linux and various BSD variants.

Drawing is an Open Source MS-Paint Type of App for Linux Desktop

For people introduced to computers with Windows XP (or earlier version), MS Paint was an amusing application from sketching random stuff. In a world dominated with Photoshop and GIMP, the paint applications still hold some relevance. There are several painting applications available for Linux, and I am going to add one more to this list. The app is unsurprisingly called Drawing and you can use it on both Linux desktop and Linux smartphones. Read more
