Debian Stretch released

Postby Arjen Balfoort » 18 Jun 2017 08:21

[UPDATE]
Beta testing has been posted here: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=6930


Here's a copy of the announcement:
Hi all,

I note that some Debian derivatives are based on Debian stable.
The Debian release team have recently released Debian 9 (stretch)!

https://bits.debian.org/2017/06/stretch-released.html
https://www.debian.org/News/2017/20170617
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.

https://www.debian.org/security/
https://wiki.debian.org/LTS

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.

https://mentors.debian.net/intro-maintainers
https://www.debian.org/Bugs/Reporting
https://wiki.debian.org/how-can-i-help

Please direct any questions you have to the derivatives list or IRC
channel. We strongly encourage you to join both of these.

bye,

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.

I've split off silopolis' posts. Please open a dedicated thread if you need support with the upgrade.

You can see me confused now. What shall we do exactly with SolydXK now?
Or will there appear an opinion soon to change the sources.list in a very easy way, like the last time with "Jessie"?

If you did all the updates during the last month you need to do nothing at the moment. You'll stay at jessie, which is no problem for at least a year.
The team is still trying to figure out how to do a smooth update to stretch especially on KDE. Schoelje and grizzler are busy with their jobs and hardware problems at the moment, so there won't be a quick solution. Waiting seems like a good idea.

Debian9 comes with a lot of library changes and there are reports about failed upgrades, long boot times etc. Also the change to KDE 5 Plasma is a big one. Safest way is to do a new parallel install and transfer all data and whatever else you want to keep.

SolydX users should have less problems to manually change their repos and dist-upgrade. I have done that on server systems and it worked. I haven't tested that on a desktop system because I prefer the route with a parallel install. That way I always have a working system and that's important for me.

I've started a beta testing topic here: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=6930

This includes upgrade scrypt for SolydXK-8 systems and beta ISOs.

Please, help us testing :D
