Debian 10 "Buster" will come with automatic security installations

Debian codenames (Toy Story)

The Debian Project girls and boys have been working hard on the current Debian versions with the releases that have occurred in the last few days, but they are also working very hard for future improvements. We already know that Debian 10, codenamed «Buster» will bring a system that will automatically install security updates.
