TheSSS 22.1 available for download.

This is a minor (point) release based on the 4MLinux Server 22.1, meaning that the components of the LAMP server are now: Linux 4.9.33, Apache 2.4.27, MariaDB 10.2.7, and PHP (both 5.6.31 and 7.0.21). The following servers have also been updated: DNS (BIND 9.11p3), SMTP (Postfix 3.2.2) and SSH (OpenSSH 7.5p1).

You can update your TheSSS by executing the "zk update" command (fully automatic process).
