New version of Debian is out… codename stretch. Thats the name of the stretchy octopus toy from Toy Story 3
All the code names of debian come from Toy story
For normal desktops users of the testing branch, updates come incremmentally and we have been using stretch without problems for a while now, but stable deployments have a new version to jump to when ready!
In my experience, for testing users, its better to stay in stable for a while (at least 2-3 months) before jumping into testing again. Theres a lot of new packages waiting to enter debian and it takes a while to stabilize again. Developers has been asked to spread out their uploads a little so not everything breaks at once
Also, the first point release is expected in a month. So wait out that long for a smoother transtion of your stable installations
