Redis 2.4.5

Redis 2.4.5 has been released with these changes :

  • [BUGFIX] Fixed a ZUNIONSTORE/ZINTERSTORE bug that can cause a NaN to be inserted as a sorted set element score. This happens when one of the elements has +inf/-inf score and the weight used is 0.
  • [BUGFIX] Fixed memory leak in CLIENT INFO.
  • [BUGFIX] Fixed a non critical SORT bug (Issue 224).
  • [BUGFIX] Fixed a replication bug: now the timeout configuration is respected during the connection with the master.
  • –quiet option implemented in the Redis test.
The packages of Redis 2.4.5 are now available for Debian 6.0 “Squeeze” on both amd64 and i386 architectures.

MySQL 5.5.19

The packages of MySQL 5.5.19 are now available for Debian 6.0 “Squeeze” on both amd64 and i386 architectures. They fix some annoying issues that Dotdeb users kindly reported :

  • the mysql-common package, in its 5.5.19+ version, “breaks”  mysql-server-5.1 and mysql-client-5.1 (as APT means it – it won’t actually break your server into pieces). Freezing it will prevent any issue (the introduction of unknown configuration variables in their /etc/mysql/my.cnf, for example)
  • the MySQL client now uses the system’s readline library instead of the bundled editline wrapper
  • missing header files and libraries are now included in the appropriate packages

As usual, please read the full Changelog carefully before upgrading.

Nginx Passenger

Nginx 1.0.11 : Passenger 3.0.11 and Push stream support

Nginx 1.0.11 packages are now available :

  • for both Debian 6.0 “Squeeze” and 5.0 “Lenny”
  • for both amd64 and i386 architectures

Here are the changes on the Dotdeb side :

  • nginx-extras now includes the Push stream module, instead of the bogus HTTP Push. Please review your configuration.
  • nginx-extras now uses Passenger 3.0.11
Please take a look at Nginx’ and Passenger’s Changelogs before upgrading.



No more Debian 5.0 “Lenny” support after february 2012

The Debian project has announced in a security advisory (DSA-2360-1) that the security support for Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 “Lenny” will be terminated in february 2012 :

This is an advance notice that security support for Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 
(code name "lenny") will be terminated in two months.

The Debian project released Debian GNU/Linux 6.0 alias "squeeze" on the 
6th of February 2011. Users and distributors have been given a one-year 
timeframe to upgrade their old installations to the current stable 
release. Hence, the security support for the old release of 5.0 is going 
to end on the 6th of February 2012 as previously announced.

Previously announced security updates for the old release will continue 
to be available on

FYI, Dotdeb will follow this decision and no new packages will be available for Debian 5.0 after february 2012. Don’t be sad, this will give me some free time to focus on PHP 5.4 packages and some more cool tools.

It’s now time to upgrade your last Lenny boxes…
