New Debian GNU/Linux Update

,----[ Quote ]
| A new Debian GNU/Linux Update was released a few weeks ago - well, actually
| one and a half new updates, to be precise. I just got around to giving it a
| try, and I'm pleased and impressed.
|
| The new release is 4.0r4a, and it incorporates security updates and bug
| fixes. At the same time, they have released what they call
| an "etch-and-a-half" release, which adds support for new hardware to their
| current stable release, largely by updating to a newer Linux kernel (2.6.24
| instead of 2.6.18). Given that Debian tends to be VERY conservative about
| updates to stable versions, this is a big step forward.
