     Debian Stretch was officially released on Saturday[1], and I've 
built a new Stretch base image for VPS use in the WMF cloud. All 
projects should now see an image type of 'debian-9.0-stretch' available 
when creating new instances.

     Puppet will set up new Stretch instances just fine, and we've 
tested and tuned up several of the most frequently-used optional puppet 
classes so that they apply properly on Stretch.  Stretch is /fairly/ 
similar to Jessie, so I'd expect most puppet classes that apply properly 
on Jessie to work on Stretch as well, but I'm always interested in the 
exceptions -- If you find one, please open a phabricator ticket.

     The WMF and the Cloud team is committed to long-term support of 
this distribution.  If you are starting a new project or rebuilding a VM 
you should start with Stretch to ensure the longest possible life for 
your work.
