Quoting Debian Wheezy release notes:

  • Some packages from proposed-updates may also be made available via the wheezy-updates mechanism. This path will be used for updates which many users may wish to install on their systems before the next point release is made, such as updates to virus scanners and timezone data. All packages from wheezy-updates will be included in point releases.

    In order to use packages from wheezy-updates, you can add an entry to your sources.list:

    deb     http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian wheezy-updates main contrib
    deb-src http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian wheezy-updates main contrib

    The next time you run apt-get update, the system will become aware of the packages in the wheezy-updates section and will consider them when looking for packages to upgrade.

    Note that if APT::Default-Release is set in your /etc/apt/apt.conf (or in any of /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/*), then, in order for automatic upgrades to work, it is necessary to add the following configuration block into /etc/apt/preferences (see apt_preferences(5) for more information):

    Package: *
    Pin: release o=Debian,n=wheezy-updates
    Pin-Priority: 990

    When a new package is made available via wheezy-updates, this will be announced on the debian-stable-announce mailing list.

stable-updates were introduced in DebianSqueeze, to replace DebianLenny's Volatile (see announcement).
