Debian GNU/Linux 9 ‘Stretch’ Installer Gets GNU Screen, Linux Kernel 4.7 Support

“Debian developer Cyril Brulebois was pleased to announce this past weekend the release and immediate availability of the eighth Alpha development snapshot of the Debian GNU/Linux 9 ‘Stretch’ installer,” reports Softpedia. An anonymous reader quotes their article: It’s been four long months since Alpha 7 of Debian GNU/Linux 9 “Stretch” hit the testing channels back in July, but the wait was worth it as the Alpha 8 release adds a huge number of changes, starting with initial support for the GNU Screen terminal multiplexer and lots of debootstrap fixes, which now defaults to merged-/usr. “debootstrap now defaults to merged-/usr, that is with /bin, /sbin, /lib* being symlinks to their counterpart in /usr (more details on: https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2016/09/msg00269.html),” wrote Cyril Brulebois in the mailing list announcement, where it states that default debootstrap mirror was switched to deb.debian.org.
