The last 14 of August Bullseye began to gallop. That is the code name of the latest version of one of the most important Linux distributions in the world, one on which, for example, the famous Ubuntu is based. Like all, this version will be supported for 5 years, and there are still two to go until the next one, which does not mean that there will be no corrections. In fact last night I arrive Debian 11.1 with the first patches.
Articles on Debian Point Updates are rarely the most exciting, and we tend to focus on the release itself. In fact, the project that develops the operating system does not publish anything striking either, focusing on mentioning the corrections made and that it is not a new version of the system, so it is not necessary to perform the installation from scratch; just update the packages
Debian 11.1 contains fixes
Note that the spot release is not a new version of Debian 11, but only updates some of the bundled packages. No need to throw away your old installation media. After installation, packages can be updated to current versions using an updated Debian mirror.
At the same time as Debian 11.1, the project has released Debian 10.11, which is Buster's eleventh point update. Debian 10 was released in the summer of 2019, so it still has three more years of support left and will continue to release maintenance updates until 2024.
Among the patches that have been introduced in Debian 11.1 we have 24 security. The rest, with a total of 74, are distributed among the different operating system packages such as Mutter, Nautilus or the Kernel.
Debian 11 you will continue to receive updates like this until 2026. The next version will be Debian 12, codenamed Bookworm, the green worm with glasses from the Toy Story saga.
