Linux kernel 3.0 is out

It could not have been foreseen when <a href="http://www.h-online.com/open/features/What-s-new-in-Linux-2-6-39-1242910... 2.6.39 was released</a> in mid-May, but it has now happened: Linux 3.0 is here.

Iceweasel 5 in Debian Squeeze

&nbsp;The versioning of Mozilla&rsquo;s Firefox web browser, and the rebranded Iceweasel browser in Debian, going from 3.6.x to 4.x and now 5.x and 6.x has Linux users (and Debian users in particular) constantly messing with their sources to make sure they&rsquo;ve got the version of Iceweasel they want.

As I explain below, the <a href="http://mozilla.debian.net/">Debian Mozilla team APT archive</a> has got you covered. But first a little more informational whining:


Website upgraded to Drupal 7

Dear readers,

Time hurries on and sometimes we need to adapt to the new situation. You are now confronted with a totally new layout. The underlying code which is used by Linux on your Apple Mac has changed. The old site used Drupal 6, the new one is based on Drupal 7. I had to change the theme as well. Sky, which was the default theme in Drupal 6, was too simplistic to my idea. The new website uses a theme called Corolla.&nbsp; I hope you all like it.

As always, this is just a minor update that fixes security issues and critical bugs, and it does not provide new versions of any of the included applications.
