New updates have been released for all* of the Ubuntu and Debian AMIs listed on:
The primary enhancements in this release are:
Ubuntu Hardy and Intrepid have new apt sources.list pointing to the local EC2 mirrors provided by RightScale. Please let me know if you have any problems with updates.
Debian “lenny” has been released as the new “stable”. Debian “squeeze” is the new “testing”, so the latest Debian mapping is as follows:
squeeze - “testing” lenny - “stable” etch - “oldstable”
As always, “sid” is “unstable” and I can’t imagine why you would want to run this on EC2 unless you’re a Debian developer in which case you should probably built your own AMIs.
When I run “squeeze” it thinks that it is “lenny” (lsb_release -a). I assume that this is because it has just been branched from lenny but it’s possible that I didn’t build it correctly. Let me know if you have further information on this.
The Ubuntu 6.10 Edgy and 7.04 Feisty AMIs are obsolete, unsupported, and are not updated.
The AMIs are in the process of being copied to eu-west-1 (Europe). Documentation will be updated soon.
