debian users and firefox how much longer to wait???


before apt-get has the newer 1.0.4 to fix the security issues with 1.0.3...


i have been running apt-get update followed by apt-get install mozilla-firefox since 1.0.4 was released and i still keep getting the following:::

Code:
p4ssmahome:~# apt-get install mozilla-firefox
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
mozilla-firefox is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 18 not upgraded.
so what gives. FF is still telling me it is vs 1.0.3-2

this is my sources.list

Code:
#deb file:///cdrom/ sarge main

I doubt it, but debian stuff isn't always updated that fast. I'm still waiting for xorg.

Might be in testing or unstable. I have had 1.0.4 since the day after Mozilla released there version. Since that time there was even an update.

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050517 Firefox/1.0.4 (Debian package 1.0.4-2)

It's not in Sarge. I think everything has to be in Sid for at least 2 weeks before it gets moved to testing. Doesn't make any sense with FF, though.

thanks craigevil ill see what i can add to get the most current vs of FF.

Emerson i agree with something that is already stable there is no reason to move it through the standard sid, sarge, woody steps.

by changing from testing to unstable i was able to grab FF 1.0.4-2 this afternoon. i then changed sources back to testing.
