DVD OF THE MONTH
Here’s the latest and the most stable version of Debian.
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.
