Debian 8.7 released

The Debian project is pleased to announce the seventh update of its
stable distribution Debian 8 (codename jessie).
This update mainly adds corrections for security problems to the stable
release, along with a few adjustments for serious problems. Security advisories
were already published separately and are referenced where available.Please note that this update does not constitute a new version of Debian
8 but only updates some of the packages included. There is
no need to throw away old jessie 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via an up-to-date Debian mirror after an installation, to cause any out of
date packages to be updated.Those who frequently install updates from security.debian.org won’t have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 installation media and CD and DVD images containing updated packages
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)
