The Debian Project
Updated Debian 9: 9.11 released
September 8th, 2019

The Debian project is pleased to announce the eleventh update of its
oldstable distribution Debian 9 (codename "stretch").

This point release is primarily an update to the recently-released 9.10,
in order to resolve a critical problem with the installer that was
discovered during image testing.

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 won't have
to update many packages, and most such updates are included in the point

New installation images will be available soon at the regular locations.

Upgrading an existing installation to this revision can be achieved by
pointing the package management system at one of Debian's many HTTP
mirrors. A comprehensive list of mirrors is available at:
