Debian 7.3 Released

Posted December 23, 2013

An update to Debian’s stable release Wheezy has been announced–version 7.3 is the third update of Wheezy, and comes two months after the last one. This is a point release, meaning its not a distro release; its sole purpose is to complement the stable release and not to replace it.

Debian 7.3 comes with several up-to-date packages and security fixes. As observed by Softpedia, the handling of :any in single-arch systems and processing of .debs over 2GB in size has been fixed, various memory leaks have been corrected, a number of upstream updates have been integrated.

Among the updated packages are apt, firebird, gtk, postgresql and smplayer: these have been bugfixed. There are several other packages that have been fixed for security and for which security advisories were previously published by Debian. These include ruby, torque, systemd, xorg-server, chromium-browser, iceweasel, spip, lighttpd, nginx and drupal.

Existing Debian Wheezy users can simply update their installations:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

New users can grab an install image from Debian’s official download page. Note that v7.3 images are still being added to the mirrors and it may take a couple more days for all mirrors to become up-to-date.
