De­bian 9 Stretch GNOME Live

Af­ter 26 months of de­vel­op­ment, the De­bian Project has re­leased its sta­ble ver­sion 9 (code name ‘Stretch’). With the com­bined ef­forts of the De­bian se­cu­rity team and of the De­bian Long Term Sup­port team, this re­lease will be sup­ported for the next five years. In Stretch, the de­fault MySQL vari­ant has been re­placed with Mari­aDB. Fire­fox and Thun­der­bird re­turn to De­bian with this re­lease and re­place their de­branded ver­sions Iceweasel and Ice­dove, which were in the archive for more than 10 years.

Ad­min­is­tra­tors and those in se­cu­rity-sen­si­tive en­vi­ron­ments can take com­fort know­ing that the X dis­play sys­tem no longer re­quires root priv­i­leges to run. The Stretch re­lease is the first ver­sion of De­bian to fea­ture the ‘mod­ern’ branch of GnuPG (GNU Pri­vacy Guard) in the ‘gnupg’ pack­age.

The bun­dled DVD can boot in to the live ver­sion of the De­bian 9 GNOME (64-bit) desk­top en­vi­ron­ment and also has an im­age of the Cin­na­mon Live ver­sion in the oth­er_isos folder. The de­fault live user is user and the pass­word is live.
