Debian is a very solid rock where many business or educational network infrastructures are built. However, as it usually happens it is not perfect, and every now and then the development team makes some updates to fix bugs. So, Debian 10.4 has been released and here we tell you what’s new.
As this is a maintenance version, don’t expect too much different from the release of Debian 10. As the release note says, “This point release mainly adds corrections for security issues, along with a few adjustments for serious problems”.
So, Debian 10.4 is an important release from the point of view of security news and patches, but not much else.
What does Debian 10.4 bring?
Debian 10 was characterized by including much modern and quite stable software. However, there is always a need for smaller versions that will fix bugs that arise over time and with the use of the system. Debian 10.4 is a version designed for that.
In general, this new version includes a new version of ClamAV as well as corrections in OpenGL that directly affected LibreOffice.
If you use FTP servers you will be happy to know that vulnerabilities in Filezilla have been fixed.
On the other hand, the latest NVidia driver is included which is certainly an advantage if you use a graphic card from this company.
The Debian development team takes security very seriously and has incorporated many patches that affect desktop applications such as Thunderbird, Firefox or Chromium; but also server-side applications such as OpenLDAP, qemu or python-Django.
How can I get it?
If you already use Debian, you don’t have to do anything but upgrade. That is, you don’t need to do a new installation. So, you just have to upgrade your entire distribution.
Now, if you don’t use Debian, this is a good time to give it a try and in that case, you can download the ISO images from this link.
