Debian 1.3.1 Released

July 8th, 1997

Debian GNU/Linux 1.3.1 is now available on our 79 FTP sites. In addition, our Official 2-CD Set is available for you to duplicate and sell (or give away) with no fee from us.

The main difference from 1.3 to 1.3.1 is the inclusion of XFree86 3.3 . This solves a number of known security bugs and other problems in X. There are also bug-fixes to several other packages.

You can find the Official Debian GNU/Linux 1.3.1 2-CD Set for sale at excellent prices. Please see for a listing of CD vendors.

If you already have a 1.3 CD, you may find it most economical to update your system to 1.3.1 automatically from one of our 79 FTP mirror sites. You can do this using Dselect's FTP installation method. You can also download and install Debian for the first time using FTP. A listing of mirror sites can be found here.

If you would like to duplicate and sell the Official Debian 1.3.1 2-CD Set, you can download the ISO 9660 image files from one of several official CD mirror sites. In addition, CD manufacturers only can order two gold CD masters, ready to duplicate, sent via air express for $50. To order, send mail to [Offer no longer valid].
