Debian 9 will be released on June 17

Debian Stretch

After a long wait, we already know exactly when Debian 9 will be released. One of the members of the Debian development team, has announced that this operating system will be released definitively on June 17. This leaves us only a little more than half a month of waiting.

Debian 9 has arrived after a long development period and it seems that it is almost finished. The few days that remain until its development is completed will be used to thoroughly review the distribution, ensuring its stability and eliminating all errors that are detected.

Debian 9 It will come with the Kernel 4.9 LTS, in order to guarantee complete stability and long duration of the operating system, just as the Debian project has us used to. It will also come with programs like Mesa 13.0.6 and X.Org Server 1.19.2.

In addition, will come with GCC version 6.33 and with the controversial systemd in its version 232. If you are one of those purists who do not want systemd in Debian, you are in luck, since yesterday it came out Devuan, a version of Debian without this software.

Enough time has passed since Debian 8 came out, until Debian 9 finally sees the light. This is perfectly normal, since the Debian project is based on stable, long-lasting versions that have many hours of work behind. However, the wait is coming to an end and Debian lovers will surely be happy.

We are too and not just because we love Debian, but because we have been following its development for quite some time. We have followed your freezing phase, its final phase of development and we've been here since began its development ago more than 2 years. Now for us it will be a pride to see it finished.

Now just we have to wait a little more and we will have our beloved Debian 9 Stretch available for download. A long wait that will certainly be worth it.

    This will be the next stable, but what will be the next test?

    Expected news! Even though I switched to Devuan two days ago, it was very gratifying to completely remove SystemD after 2 years!
    I hope at least Debian Stretch has the option to choose SysVinit just like Debian Jessie. The bad thing about SystemD is that many applications became dependent on it.

    It does not seem like a long wait for the quality of the product they deliver, on the contrary, I think they have done it quickly. If I had to wait another year I would ... There are people still using Windows XP without caring that it is discontinued, there are people with Windows 7 and people with Ubuntu 12.04 and 14.04. Debian is Debian and I expect what corresponds, much or little the product is excellent.

      I also think that a long wait is worth it after a job well done, something that Debian certainly always does.

    I think the next test will be Buster debian 10.
