Due to a release critical error we didn't noticed and which wasn't reported until the release we had to re-spin the ISOs. This bug doesn't affect installed systems.
The base system was updated and the E17 desktop environment was updated.
- Release critical bug solved
- Many bugs solved
- New E17 build (78753)
- updated Debian base system (new updates, bug fixes, security fixes etc.)
- Debian security repository points to wheezy instead of testing (bug)
