These versions are maintained under distribution umbrella following their policy.


Following Debian Policy, LLNG packages are never upgraded in published distributions. However, security patches are backported by maintenance teams (except minor ones).
Debian Stretch is in LTS mode, this means that no fix is accepted unless it fixes:
  • a major security issue
  • a major breakage

Debian Stretch users should switched to one of:

  • LL::NG Community 1.9.x Debian packages
  • Debian 2.0.x packages provided by stretch-backports-sloppy (updated around 5 days after LLNG 2.0.x release)

Debian Stretch users should also plan a migration: stretch-backports-sloppy won't be updated after Debian 11 release (probably around June 2021).
