Updated Debian 6.0: 6.0.1 released

The Debian project is pleased to announce the first update of its
stable distribution Debian 6.0 (codename "Squeeze").  This update
mainly adds corrections for security problems to the stable release,
along with a few adjustment to serious problems.

Please note that this update does not constitute a new version of
Debian 6.0 but only updates some of the packages included.  There is no
need to throw away 6.0 CDs or DVDs but only to update via an up-to-date
Debian mirror after an installation, to cause any out of date packages
to be updated.

Those who frequently install updates from security.debian.org won't
have to update many packages and most updates from security.debian.org
are included in this update.

New CD and DVD images containing updated packages and the regular
installation media accompanied with the package archive respectively
will be available soon at the regular locations.

Upgrading to this revision online is usually done by pointing the
aptitude (or apt) package tool (see the sources.list(5) manual page) to
one of Debian's many FTP or HTTP mirrors.  A comprehensive list of
mirrors is available at:

Debian Installer

The Debian Installer has been updated in this point release to correct
the following issues (among others):

 * the activation of squeeze-updates on installations without a
  network mirror caused a failure to be shown,
 * the Swiss German, Bulgarian and Swedish keyboard layouts were
  unusable during installation and
 * wait longer for disks to initialize.

Furthermore it now supports installation on the following hardware:

 * QNAP TS-112, TS-212 and TS-412 (new)
 * QNAP TS-419P+ (new)
 * Buffalo Linkstation LiveV3 (new)
 * Buffalo Linkstation Mini (new)
 * iBook G4 (restored)
 * Cobalt (restored)
 * SPARC hardware (restored functionality using CD-ROM installation media and atyfb graphics cards)

The kernel image used by the installer has been updated to incorporate
a number of important and security-related fixes together with support
for additional hardware.
