Dopo 26 mesi di sviluppo il progetto #Debian è orgoglioso di presentare la sua nuova versione stabile 9 (nome in codice “#Stretch”), che sarà supportata per i prossimi 5 anni grazie al lavoro combinato del Debian Security team e del team Debian Long Term Support.
Debian 9 è dedicato al fondatore del progetto Ian Murdock
Dedicated to Ian Murdock ------------------------ Ian Murdock, the founder of the Debian project, passed away on 28th December 2015 at his home in San Francisco. He was 42. It is difficult to exaggerate Ian's contribution to Free Software. He led the Debian Project from its inception in 1993 to 1996, wrote the Debian manifesto in January 1994 and nurtured the fledgling project throughout his studies at Purdue University. Ian went on to be founding director of Linux International, CTO of the Free Standards Group and later the Linux Foundation, and leader of Project Indiana at Sun Microsystems, which he described as "taking the lesson that Linux has brought to the operating system and providing that for Solaris". Debian's success is testament to Ian's vision. He inspired countless people around the world to contribute their own free time and skills. More than 350 distributions are known to be derived from Debian. We therefore dedicate Debian 9 "stretch" to Ian. -- The Debian Developers >>> http://ftp.debian.org/debian/doc/dedication/dedication-9.0.txt
