Debian updated their stable and old-stable releases this weekend.

Debian 7.11 is the project's 11th and final point release to Debian 7 "Wheezy" with this version incorporating security updates and various bug fixes.

Debian 8.5 was marked as well and is the fifth update to Debian Jessie. Debian 8.5 carries many more bug fixes compared to Wheezy, quite a number of security fixes too, and drops MediaWiki packages as no longer being supported.
