Upcoming point releases and call for test

The Debian Project is pleased to announce that the upcoming point
releases for Debian 5 "Lenny" and Debian 6 "Squeeze" are scheduled for
October 1st and October 8th respectively.

Debian "Squeeze" 6.0.3 will ship updated Linux kernel packages, including
bug fixes from the Linux "longterm" series up to 2.6.32.46, plus updated
drivers supporting new gigabit Ethernet chips from Broadcom, Intel and
Realtek.  New packages for 32-bit PC, 64-bit PC and PowerPC are already
available for installation from the "stable-proposed-updates" suite [1].
