We do apply stable updates, but we do not change the kernel version as
reported by 'uname -r' every time we do this. Every time we do this,
users need to recompile any extra modules they use. We change the
kernel version only when the module ABI changes, and we try to avoid
With lenny we are the only distribution using 2.6.26 and we have had
difficulty in getting fixes for bugs. The stable update series for
2.6.26 ended long ago. However, with squeeze we will use 2.6.32 which
will also be used in Ubuntu and Red Hat long-term supported releases.
We hope that this will result in most important bugs being fixed
