Atualizações de segurança do Debian Sarge vão até o dia 31 de março

Recebi hoje um e-mail informando que o suporte de atualizações de segurança para o Debian Sarge (3.1) segue somente até o dia 31 de março.

Segue o e-mail:

Security Support for Debian GNU/Linux 3.1 to be terminated on March 31st

One year after the release of Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 alias 'etch' and
nearly three years after the release of Debian GNU/Linux 3.1 alias
'sarge' the security support for the old distribution (3.1 alias
'sarge') is coming to an end next month. The Debian project is proud
to be able to support its old distribution for such a long time and
even for one year after a new version has been released.

The Debian project has released Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 alias 'etch' on
the 8th of April 2007. Users and Distributors have been given a
one-year timeframe to upgrade their old installations to the current
stable release. Hence, the security support for the old release of
3.1 is going to end in March 2007 as previously announced.

Previously announced security updates for the old release will continue
to be available on security.debian.org.


É hora de começar a preparar os dist-upgrades. :-)
