Sometimes, changes introduced in a new release have side-effects we cannot reasonably avoid, or they expose bugs somewhere else. Please also read the errata, the relevant packages' documentation, bug reports, and other information mentioned in Section 6.1, “Further reading”. These now specify signature algorithms that are accepted for their respective authentication mechanism, where previously they specified accepted key types.
This distinction matters when using the RSA/SHA2 signature algorithms and their certificate counterparts.
There are a small number of cases where some intervention may be required, either before or during the upgrade; these are detailed below on a per-package basis. If this fails, it will abort the package installation, which will leave the upgrade unfinished.The high rate of vulnerabilities and partial lack of upstream support in the form of long term branches make it very difficult to support these browsers and engines with backported security fixes.Additionally, library interdependencies make it extremely difficult to update to newer upstream releases. the webkit and khtml engines source package is covered by security support.WSL also synthesizes pseudo metadata for most of the files in your Windows filesystem.The problem arises when, for example, you use a Windows app/tool to open, create and/or modify a file under your distro root: Since the file was created with a Windows tool, the file won’t have any Linux file metadata (e.g.
