New updates have been released for the Ubuntu and Debian AMIs (EC2 images) published on:
The following notes apply to this release:
The images have been upgraded to use the newest 2.6.21 kernel, ramdisk, and kernel modules from Amazon. This fixes a serious security hole in the previous 2.6.21 kernel.
The EC2 AMI tools have been upgraded to version 1.3-34544.
The ec2-ami-tools package version has been pinned so it does not get downgraded if the official Ubuntu archives still have older versions.
All packages have been upgraded to their respective latest versions.
The Ubuntu Karmic images were not updated and have been removed from the listings at the top of http://alestic.com. If you would like to use Ubuntu Karmic Beta, please test with the AMIs published by Canonical listed a bit lower down on the page.
Please give these new images a spin and let us know if you run into any problems.
