    Debian 9.0 Stretch has been released!

    This new release of Debian again comes with a lot more software than its predecessor jessie; the distribution includes over 15346 new packages, for a total of over 51687 packages. Most of the software in the distribution has been updated: over 29859 software packages (this is 57% of all packages in jessie). Also, a significant number of packages (over 6739, 13% of the packages in jessie) have for various reasons been removed from the distribution. You will not see any updates for these packages and they will be marked as "obsolete" in package management front-ends.

    Debian again ships with several desktop applications and environments. Among others it now includes the desktop environments GNOME 3.22, KDE Plasma 5.8, LXDE, LXQt 0.11, MATE 1.16, and Xfce 4.12.

    Productivity applications have also been upgraded, including the office suites:

    LibreOffice is upgraded to version 5.2;

    Calligra is upgraded to 2.9.

    Updates of other desktop applications include the upgrade to Evolution 3.22.
