Here's a copy of the announcement:
I've still got work to do (programming mainly) but unfortunately I have some technical (hardware) issues at home. I've got to solve that first before I can continue working on the next releases.Hi all,
I note that some Debian derivatives are based on Debian stable.
The Debian release team have recently released Debian 9 (stretch)!
https://lists.debian.org/msgid-search/2 ... monkey.net
This means that if you have not already started, you will need to start
the migration of your stable release to be based on Debian 9 (stretch)
instead the current base of Debian jessie/etc. Once you have switched
to stretch, please update your census page to reflect that if needed.
Debian releases receive security updates for one year after the release
of the next version so you have some time to migrate your users before
you will need to provide your own security support. In addition, the
Debian LTS team provides limited support for a longer period afterwards.
If you have already migrated your distribution to the new version, now is
a great time to start work on integrating your changes back into Debian.
If your team does not include any Debian developers, please take a look
at the mentors and bug reporting web pages.
Please direct any questions you have to the derivatives list or IRC
channel. We strongly encourage you to join both of these.
