Debian 11.2 is here with security patches and bug fixes

Debian 11.2

Unlike its most advanced student, also known as Ubuntu, the developers behind this project do not have a defined roadmap in time. They throw things when they have them ready, and, after the launch of the previous point update which arrived at the beginning of October, a few moments ago they have released Debian 11.2. As usual, Project Debian reminds us not to go crazy with these releases, that is, it is not a totally new version of your operating system.

This release took place over two months after Debian 11.1, and was released to us for cover 30 security flaws and fix 64 bugs. Among the security flaws that they have corrected there is a very important one that many projects have to correct, and not only those related to Linux, such as that of the log4j vulnerability2.

Debian 11.2 can be installed from the same operating system

The Debian Project is pleased to announce the second update to its stable Debian 11 distribution (codename bullseye). This one-off release mainly adds fixes for security issues, along with some tweaks for serious issues. The safety notices have already been published separately and are referenced when available.

Existing users can now install the Debian 11.2 packages from the software center or from the terminal with the command sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade. For new facilities, the new ISO is already the one with the numbering 11.2.

Debian 11 was released on August 14 and came with news such as the kernel Linux 5.10, GNOME 3.38 and Plasma 5.20 desktops, among others, supported until 2026 and other enhancements such as native support for exFAT. They also took the opportunity to update the packages, including GIMP 2.10.22, Vim 8.2, Python 3.9.1 and more than 59.000 other packages that will improve, or rather, update the user experience when using the latest software.

    I am a Debian user ... but since version 7, hardware support has been at the expense, especially with AMD and its "GPU Type: Radeon", better NVIDIA; I can't talk about Intel, because I don't work with that line.
    It's incredible, but until 2016 "Squeeze" was LTS, it is still formidable -the consumption of very low resources in 6 seconds you log in with UN SSD-, what I do is use a virtual machine to surf the Internet and use some more up-to-date programs .
    openSUSE, which I don't like very much, currently doesn't cause any installation problems, before it was chaos ... but I still prefer Debian, because you never have to reinstall if you change PCs!
