The release images do NOT contain the updates. One has to install the
updates AFTER installing the release. Upstream did also send out the
announcements (At least for the security updates. BTW I still don't
understand why upstream only announces security updates and not
bug-fix and enhancement updates. IMHO all updates have to be announced
as they are a change to the system that the admin / user has to be
aware of).
