Initially released five years ago, on February 6, 2011, the Debian GNU/Linux 6.x branch, which many of you out there know as “Squeeze,” had ten point releases, the last one being Debian 6.0.10, announced one and a half years ago, on July 19, 2014. Starting February 29, 2016, the Debian Squeeze series will no longer receive support.
What this means is that, beginning with March 1, the Debian Project will not provide security patches, bug fixes, and software updates to the official software repositories of the Debian GNU/Linux 6.x “Squeeze” operating system. Therefore, if you still use this branch, you have two weeks to migrate your system to a supported Debian OS.
