Debian Installer Stretch rc1 release

Beitrag von KBDCALLS » 16.01.2017 09:06:29

Der Stretch Installer ist als rc1 am 15. Januar 2017 erschienen.
The Debian Installer team[1] is pleased to announce the first release
candidate of the installer for Debian 9 "Stretch".

Important changes in this release of the installer

* The switch to merged-/usr as the default setting for debootstrap
was reverted since it uncovered a number of important issues which
might not be all fixed in time for stretch. This setting is
expected to come back as the default at the beginning of the next
release cycle.
* As noted in the Stretch Alpha 6 release announcement, Debian Pure
Blends appeared in the Software selection screen. Unfortunately,
concerns voiced back then weren't worked on until after the freeze
started, and a freeze isn't the time where critical screens should
be revamped. Support was disabled accordingly.
