Debian 5.0.10 released

A few hours ago Debian team announced the 10th and final update of Debian 5.0 (Lenny). This update has removed all the security problems which were there in the oldstable release. Debian 5.0 was released on Feb 14th, 2009, and this is going to be last update for it.

Due to some technical reasons “alpha” and “ia64” packages (from DSA 1769) are not included in this point release.

Note: Security support for oldstable distro ended in Feb 2012 and no updates have been released since then.

This updates includes many packages and updates of “security.debian.org“.
