The third ISO update to the current stable Debian 12 series, Debian 12.4, has arrived superseding Debian 12.3. Debian 12.3 was delayed due to an issue in the EXT4 file system leading to data corruption in Linux kernel 6.1.64-1. Now, the issue has been addressed and Debian 12.3 became Debian 12.4, which comes with Linux kernel 6.1.66-1.

This point release arrived 2 months after the erstwhile Debian 12.2 release, offering users the up-to-date installation media of the Debian Bookworm operating system. It comes with all the security updates released for Debian 12 series after Debian 12.2. So, users do not have to worry about installing hundreds of package updates after the installation.

There are a total of 94 bug fixes and 65 security updates included in Debian 12.4. All the security updates and bug fixes can be found on the announcement page. Also, the advisories have already been released for each of these security updates.
