The Debian project has announced updated installation media for the distribution's Debian 9 "Stretch" release. The new media is not a new version of Debian, but does provide fresh media with available security updates for people performing new installations. An announcement on the Debian website states: "Please note that the point release does not constitute a new version of Debian 9 but only updates some of the packages included. There is no need to throw away old Stretch media. After installation, packages can be upgraded to the current versions using an up-to-date Debian mirror. Those who frequently install updates from security.debian.org won't have to update many packages, and most such updates are included in the point release."
